I have Fibro as well as AP. It took a long time to correctly diagnose me, but i understand your struggle with physical pain and not getting answers and relief. I was finally referred to a rheumatologist who was able to put a name to my pain. Having said that, alot of people, both medical professionals and ordinary people will try and tell you its in your head cos its invisible. I spent more time in the 'too hard' basket than i care to remember.
Even after diagnosis, treatment has not been a huge success for me. I am truly sorry you are suffering in such an acute manner and hope you can get some relief. Could you have Bursitis, or a similar joint inflammation? See if you can get into a Rheumatologist.
Prayers and love,
