since comeing of my 125 motor bike, ive had pains in my knees ,hips, hands, and back.

I was diagnosed with rhumatioide arthritis, i have all the symptoms but no proof to proove it except the pain im in and swollen joints. Blood tests have come back ok, but im still in pain as i was given ibroprofen last week and nearly got some more this week from another dr today. can arthitus be diagnosed without proof from xrays and blood tests? i was told today that i havent got rhumatide arthritus, just arthritis but what one? and how else can i find out? how can one dr say i have it and another say i havent? even tho im in bad pain, i can no longer ride on the 750 with my other half as it causes me stiffness.

How do i find out and get some help with the pain? xcept to wait for 2 weeks to be refered.

I was given ibroprofen for pain last week, and this week something else which is still the same as what i was given the week previously.

seriously determined to find out what i do have and too get some help with it? any ideas please.
