Hi there!

RF of 30 IU/ ml is weakly positive, though it is neither diagnostic nor does it rule out RA or Sjogrens. Her symptoms seem to be related to hormonal/ related issues though other possibilities such as autoimmune conditions, infections, inflammations, micronutrient deficiencies etc may need to be considered as well. I would suggest an evaluation by an internist or a gynaecologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
