Go to MD: It is best t see an md. Fibromyalgia can seem like muscle and joint pains and depression and need evaluation. Hypothyroidism can cause same symptoms. Some rheumatologic problems can also cause the same problem. It is best to get examined and your doctor can best decide which approach to take.

It depends: Lab tests are ordered after a complete history and physical exam. The test depend somewhat on the results and the history and exam.
