The doctor also thinks I have fibromyalgia. :/

He's also having me retested for thyroid issues, rheumatoid arthritis, and elevated levels of uric acid. They're all going to come back negative again, but he just wanted to cover the bases.

Apparently he's checked me for lupus before. I didn't know that. Thankfully, that was negative too.

So what does all this mean?

For starters, it means that he doesn't think it's in my head either.
It also means that while there are some treatment options out there, there's not a whole lot that can be done about it. Diet, rest, and exercise can slow it down somewhat, but they won't cure it. Since no one really knows what causes it, no one really knows how to fix it.
