How do Rheumy's test you for these? I am going to be referred to one soon for my bone aches and I was curious if it's a blood test or more like an X Ray? Also, When they do ache it's usually around my knees, hips and back. But I noticed that when I get the pain in my shoulders that my Collar Bone bothers me some too.. Is this normal?
