Questions About Rheumatoid Arthritis

Aching joints and sore muscles?
I've had ongoing joint problems for a while now. I'm very prone to tendinitis, so we thought it was just that. I was tested for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lime Disease, both tests came back negative. Recently every single joint in my body, even tiny ones you don't think about, have been cracking and popping nonstop. It's not like I intentionally crack them, they just crack on their own. Or they'll get "stuck" and I have to pop them or I can't move that joint. Now I feel swollen all over, my muscles hurt, and everything just feels like it's throbbing, especially my hips and knees. My left knee, which I've refered to as my "bad knee" for a few years now, has a strange crackly lump just above my kneecap whenever I bend it, which of course, hurts.I also have problems with my jaw, which was diagnosed as a TMJ disorder, but it's only getting worse and worse, to the point where every single day I'm in pain because of it.I'm incredibly tired as well. I'm only seventeen, but my joints feel like they're seventy. Any information could really help. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I just want to get better.
