In a group of 21 patients suffering from early polyarthritis, there was no evidence that life change events (as measured by the social readjustment rating questionnaire) occured more often, prior to the onset of symptomatology, than in the control population. However, polyathritic patients with elevated immunnoglobulin levels, tended also to have increased life change scores.
