Hello.  It sounds like you hurt all over.  I was the same way before I got a successful treatment.  You wrote that your RA factor tested positive.  What did your doctor say about that?  Are you seeing a rheumatologist, if not you need to schedule an appt. with one.  In the mean time, you can use topical pain relievers such as biofreeze and stop pain and try over the counter pain relievers geared toward arthritis to try to get some relief.
