Question Polio Gene?

I got a call from my mother today and she said when I was young and being tested for RA the doc found a gene or something from polio. I guess my grandma had polio when she was very young and my mother clames thats where I got it from. However I cant find anything on the net about it. I love my mother very much but waiting till I was 32 years old to tell me this is odd. So I am not sure if it is true or not. If anyone has any info I would be very greatful Thank you
