Hi Lariet and welcome to the forum! And BTW, you're not dense, just learning! Have you checked out the top of this site, second thread, Fibromyalgia 101? It's chock full of information that will help you.
I agree with the others -- you must stay active in your health care -- so you must try to educate yourself as best you can. This is a great forum with lots of truly caring people who will support you, so post as often as you can.
Be sure and let us know how things go for you! And, yes, I'd try another doctor, especially a rheumatologist, so you can feel more confident in your diagnosis.
Take care and know that you are in our thoughts...........
