In brief: Rheumatologist

You need to see a board certified rheumatologist for an examination and testing and advice.
There are several kinds of arthritis in childhood and a negative test for rheumatoid arthritis doesn't have as much meaning as in adults. And even in adults you can see rheumatoid arthritis with a negative e Rheumatoi Factor.
