    hey guys! I have recently been told that my blood tests showed a positive RF. I just was so sure that I had Fibro. I know that you can have both. I need some advice from "experts"!! My legs and hips ache at night. I feel flu-like most of the time. My wrists are stiff and hurt. I am a little stiff in the mornings. My question is... is there anyone else who has tested positive but doesn't have swelling or redness in their joints? Does this come later? I don't go to the Rheumatologist until Aug. 8!!! I'm just really worried that it could be something else!! Any advice would be appreciated!!!

    What is RF postive? I've never heard of that before.

    RF is Rheumatoid factor.
