Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Positive Rheumatoid Factor

You have completed the positive RF decision guide. We hope the information here was helpful; if your situation changes or you would like additional information, please return here later.

Remember: just because a person's rheumatoid factor is positive does not mean they have rheumatoid arthritis. Doctors cannot diagnose rheumatoid arthritis (or most any other type of arthritis) from a blood test!
