I went back to my rheumy last week. He sat there with a straight face and said he didn't know what was wrong with me and didn't know how to treat it and I should just go home, learn to live with it and take tylenol!!!!!! I stared at him for a minute, then told him if tylenol did anything I would have kept my money and stayed home and taken tylenol. ( have pain in all my joints, especially the L arm and hand)
I went back to my IM doctor who told me he still thought it was fibromyalgia even though I didn't meet the criteria and that I should give the muscle relaxers about 3 months. He wouldn't give me anything for the pain. I hurt worse now than I ever have. It wakes me up multiple times a night even with muscle relaxers and ambien. If this is due to lack of sleep as he says, how in the world am I supposed to get better if the pain keeps me from sleeping!!!!
I am going to see a new Rheumy. Most likely won't be any help either but I don't know what else to do!
Awaiting official diagnosis....... maybe Chron's, Lupus, RA nobody know yet.

Beloved, Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you, But rejoice in as much as yea are partakers of Christ's sufferings: that when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. I Peter 4:12-13
