So, I guess all in all, your visit was a good one? I mean, the fact that your doc even believes in fibro is a plus. And her sending you to a pain clinic sounds good. At least she didn't tell you to suck up the pain and get over it. In my opinion, bloodwork is always a good thing, because it can rule things out-or find things you didn't even realize you had.
Now, you may not like my opinion about depression counseling, so I apologize ahead of time. I always think that talking to people about your feelings is a good thing. Also, a lot of people with fibro do suffer from depression (LOL-I wonder why? When no one believes that you are sick, you are prone to depression-in my case, anyway). So, I think that therapy could only help you. But, that's just me. As much as I talk, I'd jump at the chance to talk to someone-anyone, who will listen.
Anyway, keep us posted, OK?

Vicodin, Neurontin, Ibuprofen for pain-which doesn't help, BTW
Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
Klonopin for anxiety (Guess what? Doesn't help!)
