Welcome terlin, yes, many of your symptoms do fall under fibro. The symptoms where your hands and feet get cold and ache upon touching something cold is called raynauds. Many fibromites have this. I have it too. I have learned how to manage it even living in Alaska.
What you really need to do is see a rheumatologist. This way they can check you for numerious things. Fibro has similiar symptoms of other diagnoses. Sometimes fibromites have thyroid issues also. A good rheumatologist will check all the above.
Once you get the diagnoses, it will be a relief to know that your not going crazy. Lol You can learn so much here on how to manage your fibro. Asking frequent questions and reading daily post will be very helpful tools for you. I got a good book on fibro and it was amazing how I could see myself on each page. My Dr's didn't share hardly any of what I read in the book.
It does take time to figure a treatment regimine for your fibro. We are all different, so we respond different to meds and treatment. I have learned mine through trial and error. I have found out the more simple I keep it the better it 's. magnesium vitamin seem to be a very helpful with my feet pain. Check with your Dr. before starting any new treatments.
I am sorry your going through all this. If you do get diagnose, it can be manageable.
