rhuematoid arthritis or something else

Hey everyone, About a year ago my doctor tested my blood and said i tested positive for rhuematoid arthrits. Now I had no idea about this. No symptoms at all. So in the last couple of months I had a urinary tract infection. Well that turned into a nightmare. I did not nesseraly hurt in joints but extreme muscle pain. Could barely walk, lift up my child, do dishes or even lift a arm without pulling a muscle. One day both of my calf muscles were so tight you could touch them and feel how hard as a rock they were. I did nothing for about a month and then it went away. Makes me wonder if next time I have urinary tract infection it will happen again. Has anyone ever heard of this. It was like chronic muscle pain and pulling muscles with light activity. So I seen the doctors off and on for that month and the only thing they said was i tested positive for rhuematoid arthritis. Oh and I had chest pains like a heart attack. Had to go to er for that and they sent me home and said everything was fine. So they referred me to rhuematologists just have not made it that far yet and now i am fine so it is a little too late if you ask me. Hope all is well

I was on Cypro. I read this was not good if you have arthritis. But I am very confused by doctors and two saying I had it and Two saying I did not.
