I'm sorry you're having so much trouble. You didn't say whether you're taking anything specifically for the pain....doctors are often hesitant to prescribe painkillers, especially for someone so young, but I would think in such an extreme case, they'd give you something, at least short-term!
At least, they are doing lots of tests. That's very important, even though it can be a pain, because things have to be confirmed or ruled out.
You mentioned swelling - that's not a Fibro symptom, but numbness and tingling sure can be, along with everything else you mentioned.
Just an off-topic heads up - posting the same exact post in multiple HealingWell forums is against the rules, mostly because we do get lots of spammers who like to flood the forums....but of course, being brand-new, you didn't know that. You're looking for answers and wondering if your symptoms fall into any of the categories here.
I hope you get some answers soon. In the meantime, deep breathing, ice and/or heat, and gentle stretching if you can handle it are all safe and might do some good. Remember, we are here for you. We all understand what it's like to have chronic pain, and we give eachother lots of support. Whatever condition you turn out to have, you're not alone, and you can feel better than you do right now!
