    Do these symptoms check out?

    Random pain

    I was diagnosed as "probably" having Fibromyalgia last October when i mentioned my aches and pains and anxiety and IBS to my doctor. He, however has no real experience with treating fibro so I've been trying to wing it on my own. My symptoms now are: overall fatigue joint pain unrelieved by...
