The pain can be because of various factors, depending upon if the pain is also accompanied by the weakness of the limbs then a compression / injury to spinal cord may be indicated. To make sure you have an intact neurology please visit a neurologist so that a MRI Investigation can be suggested if needed. Rheumatoid Arthritis has many other components to it other than pain which may support it. You can then follow symptomatic treatment as advised by neurologist / physician. and may be advised for further rehabilitation programme. viz. Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.
Next Steps
Seek an Appointment with neurologist and under go assessment and investigations.

First of all you need to understand that not all cases of rheumatoid arthritis show positive results on test. About 10% cases of rheumatoid arthritis are never positive on blood tests. Thus the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis is mainly made based on clinical observations in almost all the cases. The blood reports are just supportive.
Rheumatoid arthritis is mainly affection of small joints that explains pain in fingers and toes and burning sensation too... mostly your spine also may have arthritic changes which may cause the nerve compression and referred pain to various areas of your upper as well as lower limbs...its recommended that you get the Xrays done of your spine and meet good rheumatologist... and follow the course of meds given and post rheumatologist also meet physiotherapist for charting of your exercise pattern creation and followup.
