From your complaints , it seems like you are having Sero negative arthropathy most propably SLE. Have a complete blood test done including RA factor , HLA B 27 , CRP, serum Uric acid levels and ASO. Naproxen might not be sufficient for your symptoms. Please have the blood tests done and you can email me your results at
Get well soon.
