: Has anyone heard of a link between rubella (not the vaccination but the virus itself)
: and rheumatoid arthritis/ antibodies?? Does anyone know if one can have had rubella
: without the external symptoms of rashes? One of its symptoms is transient arthritis.
: Anyone with info. I'd appreciate hearing back from.
All I know is that I was never able to have the Rubella shot when I was young because I had Arthritis. But I never fully understood why. Good luck on your research.
