Hello.Welcome.SERONEGATIVE ARTHRITIS means you are rheumatoid factor negative.Your most likely cause for pain in back and shoulder could be ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS.Get yourself tested for HLA B27.This problem is found in young people and there is a gradual onset of low back pain which is worse in night with morning stiffness(spinal)and is releived by exercise.Exercises and medicines will keep the things in check.Good luck.
