Question about atypical RA symptoms

Hi guys,
I'm trying to get a diagnosis. For the past month I've had joint pain that started with my fingers, developed symmetrically, and spread to my feet, shoulders, hips, etc. I also have eye dryness.

However, I don't have swelling, redness or stiffness. My tests are also negative. Therefore my rheumatologist didn't diagnose me with Rheumatoid Arthritis. But I think he might be wrong, and I know how important it is to start treating RA as early as possible.

So my question is - has anyone here experienced similar symptoms - pain but no swelling/stiffness - which eventually developed into full-blown RA?

Thank you!
