Hi,
How are you? Aside from joint pain and fatigue, what other symptoms are present? The rheumatoid factor (RF) test is primarily used to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or Sjögren syndrome. This test may be ordered along with  ANA (antinuclear antibody) which is also used to help screen for autoimmune disorders. Other factors such as your medical history, results of the other diagnostic tests and over-all health are important considerations also in determining the diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
