In brief: Fibromyalgia?
If you mean fibromyalgia, it is a diagnosis of exclusion.
Most doctors also want to rule out psychological component. You may want to find another doctor to help you.

20's person bemoans doctor disbelief in fibromyalgia (FM).
Many doctors have difficult time w. symptoms for which they cannot find physical explanation & oft default to psychological arena for causes. Yet, esteemed Rheumatology Am. College defines a specific FM disorder. IMO, clinicians should evaluate for sacroiliac joint disorder & Joint Hypermobility Syndrome to observe objective signs of FM.
