hi lyn , pain in my hips are normaly caused by lower back problmes & think it goes with your oesteoporosis , its pretty rare to get it with RA & not for someone starting out with RA

as for your hands & fingers , taking blood will show up if you have RA in 80% of the time , most people with RA have Rheumatiod Factor which they can test for . x-rays would help as it can be refered to in the future for people with RA

as for fibromyalgia , there are test they can do for this but very little treatment at moment apart from pain killers
