In brief: Arthritis

There are many causes of arthritis.
It sounds like you have had some medical care for this before. I would recommend seeing your physician or rheumatologist for more information.

There are multiple causes for joint pain as well as positive rheumatoid factors other than ra.
You need a good examination to determine what is the cause.
