Cindykay,
Hello and welcome to the forum. I think your doctor is approaching your illness in a way that gives time for any other diagnosis to present it's self. When all blood work comes out normal then often times fibro is the right answer. Sometimes all symptoms of a illness are not standing out and if something more serious is going to become known it will in time. In the meantime the best thing you can do for yourself is begin self-management of your condition.

Learn all you can on how to manage each symptom you have, as @cmetryme, has said start a daily log book of symptoms and feelings of pain as in how bad and include any chronic symptom that does not go away. Read the posts, new and old, under the topic's that effect you the most. Practice relaxation methods and don't over do. Ask questions and add your thoughts to other members posts. Make friends here of people who truly understand how you feel mentally and physically. And know most of all you are not alone and we are happy you found us.
