I have severe pain in the joints of my hands

I have severe pain in the joints of my hands and fingers (primarily) but also in my hips, knees and feet. I also have swelling and some disfigurement in my fingers, which also pop out of joint if I close my hand tightly. I had a blood test and my RA count was 341 and it says the normal range is <15. Is there any condition other than Rheumatoid Arthritis that will cause this condition?

back in April 2012 my right thumb starting hurting , it would pop when I tried to bend it . When the end was touched it was very painful anddown at the bottem near my hand it was very painful deep inside . These symthoms lasted a couple months. By the end og July my thumb does not bend. I have felt pain on the outside of my wrist. A week ago my joint where my thumb connects to my hand has poped a few times. I have lost the ability to use my right thumb and am getting a little scared that this might be something serious . I am in a bit of a situation , no income , no insurance , therefor not able to go to a doctors office.
