Aching joints

I've been unwell recently with the usual cold, chest infections, but weeks before this I have been having aching joints. They seem to be getting worse sad and I'm exhausted.

I had a blood test a few weeks ago, but was waiting on the results. I rang yesterday and was told my rheumatoid result was positive/ abnormal, and my white blood cells were borderline. Glad I rang them.

Anyway, has anyone else been in this position?

I haven't been given a diagnosis as such, but have been told that I need to see a rheumatologist.

I'm getting shooting pains in my joints, and it's making me miserable.
