Hi there!

Rheumatoid arthritis is never acquired though a few factors may trigger it, ablation not being one of them. I would suggest considering an evaluation by an internist or a rheumatologist for an accurate diagnosis and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
