I had the exact same problems when I was first diagnosed about 4 years ago. I couldn't even lift a gallon of milk. It hurt so bad. I was diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue disease. The key to that was the anti-rnp. I have a positive one also.
Anyway, I would push to see a rheumatologist sooner or go back to your regular doctor. I am taking plaquenil,methotrexate, vicodin and tramadol to help me get through my days. It isn't a fun disease by any means but you can get to feeling better if you treat it.
