Hi nomaticmom and welcome. Read the fibro 101 thread, first on first page, it has a list of symptoms but it also contains "what else could it be" and make sure you have been tested for all those disorders.
We are all so different in how fibro started and our day to day symptoms. Mine started with fatigue and is still the biggest problem most of the time. It took an all out "been beaten with a baseball bat" flare for me to get a dx. I had already been tested for everything else. Because of the MPS (knots in the muscles) I have sore spots all over my body now that I didn't have when I was dxd.
I hope you get the answers so you will know what is wrong with you, we need to know what we are fighting.
luv and hugs
