RA or Sjogren's

I was recently diagnosed with RA. Or was I??? I have joint pain and stiffness. My RA factor and Sedrate are off the charts high but my doctor says that I do not completely fit the RA catagory. Other blood factors are not registering for RA. So she tested me for Sjogren's... yes, I am positive for this as well but do not completely fit this disorder either. I am feeling frustrated and am looking for anyone who has had a similiar experience. RA is huge in my family. My mother completely overcome by the disease and my Aunt who was diagnosed as a child with Juvenile RA. She is now overcome with the disease.
