1 doctor agrees

In brief: Most likely not

Classic gastrointestinal symptoms, such as those involving the stomach, small, and large intestines, are not commonly associated with the disease.
Sun et al failed to find any correlation between RA and upper GI disease, while another study from modern rheumatology actually found that having RA might decrease common stomach infections.
