First off I'd like to welcome you to the forum. Sorry you've had to come here under the circumstances but hopefully we can help some. By your name I'm wondering if you are from Ohio? I am so the Buckeye thing is familiar to me.
Have you ever had blood work completed to rule out any auto-immune diseases? I would think that with your symptoms and family history that would have been the first thing your pcp would have tried. If not that would be my first step. The only way to get a dx of fibromyalgia is to rule out everything else first.
Next would be to start a pain journal to take with you to your first appt. with the new PCP. This would help give your new doctor an idea of your true pain levels and maybe anything imparticular that may be setting it off. Also, write down any questions or points you want to remember. Sometimes it is easy to forget things when you are in the docs office.
Did the ortho doc do any kind of testing before sending you to PT? If he did could you let us know what the results were? This may help us give any suggestions that may help. There are alot of us here with chronic back pain and we all find different things that help.
One thing you have to realize is that we are not doctors but can give suggestions that may help. Everyone is different so what helps one person may not work on another but if you've been reading any of the posts I'm sure you have figured that out.
One thing I may suggest is that you are using Aleve to help with your pain. I myself find that Aleve and other nsaids such as ibuprophen do nothing for me. Tylenol on the other hand does. You just need to be careful not to overdo either due to either stomach upset or kidney problems. A rice bag heated in the microwave makes a good moist heat pad which is the best kind of heat for pain. They are easy to make, cheap and alot of us here use them.
Good Luck and keep us posted. I'm sure there will be others along to give you more ideas.
