Wellcome to HealingWell. I am so sorry about your Father, my Father died of the same thing. My sympathy to you.
Your sx could be caused by stress but also by many other disorders. I would like to suggest you see your physician and get a good physical, tell your Physician how you are feeling emotionally too.
Hope to get to know you better.

p.s. sometimes a traumatic event can bring on fibro. Mine came on after I got a large blood clot in my leg after my hysterectomy. It was a scary time.
My joint pain started before my anxiety. The joint in my left ankle began to hurt, I had MRI and x-rays etc. saw several different doctors, with all of them telling me that they can not find anything wrong.
Then my anxiety/panic attacks started and I began having pain near my sternum, sometimes it even pops. Then the pain in my left ankle radiated into my lower left foot. Again the doctors say they can't find anything wrong. I to have been to a Rhemetologist and she said I appeared normal.
I had never thought that my anxiety could be causing this joint pain, but if others are experiencing joint/muscle pain, maybe it is one of the wierd things that anxiety causes.
