Hi jlw and welcome. The others pretty much said it all on how to get a dx of fibro. Please read the fibro 101 thread, second thread on first page, and there is a list of symptoms among a lot of other great info. Some are quite surprised at how many symptoms they have that they didn't know was part of fibro.
Having a good doctor that believes in fibro is the first step and the most important one. So I would take a list of the symptoms and keep a journal for pain and fatigue and talk to your doc about it. If he or she dismisses the possibility or tells you there is no such disorder than you need to find another doc.
I was lucky enough to have a GP that dxd me and then sent me to a rheumy to confirm.
luv and hugs
