Rheumatoid factor is a blood marker for rheumatoid arthritis. It can be elevated due to having rheumatoid disease or it can be a false positive test. To determine if you have RA you also need to have symptoms like morning joint pain and stiffness lasting most of the morning along with redness and swelling of the joints in the hands and feet. I recommend that you see a rheumatologist

doctor1 MD

this could be due to a vast range of possibilities meet a rheumatologist as soon as possbile meanwhile test rheumatoid factor, ana and anti ccp getting x rays of the affected joints will help too
