Is it possible to get arthritis in your back? If so, is there a way to tell that you have it?

I've gone to my doctor for chronic back pain that I've been having for years. It gets worse when I stand for a long time or when it rains or is cold outside. I think I may have arthritis, but I don't want to sound like a crazy person self-diagnosing myself. Does anyone know how they test for arthritis?
