Exercise: You may be simply deconditioned form inactivity. The good news is your rheumatolgy workup is negative. If not active, begina program of burst interval high and low impact aerobics. Consult a physicial therpay and/or a personal trainer. Use Advil (ibuprofen) ( low dose) until joint pain resolves. BioFreeze is another excellent product for joint pain.
