In brief: FIBROMYALGIA

It sounds that you have fibromyalgia, it is commonly in women who complain of chronic , widespread body pain and may cause disturbed sleep and insomnia.
If pain killers and anti-depressants can not help, physical therapy and chiropractor may be tried also cognitive behavioral therapy can help.

In brief: ConsiderFibromyalgia

The fibromyalgia syndrome [fms] exhibits chronic [lasting at least 3 months] widespread [involving much of the body] pain.
Many medications used for pain or depression are not helpful for fms pain. Routine lab tests are usually normal. Return to your primary care physician, or see a rheumatologist, with the specific question: is my pain caused by fms. Learn about fms from a variety of sources.
