Hi, Girl, and welcome! I'm so glad you found us and joined in. Fibromyalgia can cause pain like that and some other "goodies" too. It's a difficult illness to understand...the doctors don't understand it either. So, we just keep trying things and see what works for us. What works for one might not work for another.
I see Karen directed you to the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro there including symptoms, some exercises, and a link to What Else Could It Be. Fibromyalgia has some of the same symptoms of other illnesses so a good doctor will run tests to rule out the other problems before the diagnosis of fibromyalgia is given.
Be sure that the doctor you use does believe that fibromyalgia exists. There are some doctors that consider it a "catch-all" illnesses or they think it's all in our heads. Yeah, right! So you want a doctor that believes and will listen to you. Many use a rheumatologist for their fibro. I use a board certified Internist. Once you get a diagnosis then you should be given some help to help you control the pain.
Read back posts and ask questions. We are here to help you I hope to hear more from you soon.
