My Arms From Shoulder To Elbow Ache So Bad All The Time I Cant Sleep And When It Rains They Are Wors

My arms from my shoulder to elbow ache so bad all the time I can't sleep, and when it rains they are worse. This pain started in my legs 3 yrs. ago and finally last year eased off. Now my right shoulder and both arms from shoulder to elbow ache so bad I could cry; it doesn't stop with advil and a heating pad helps a little. They ache worse in the morning when I get out of bed. I DO HAVE BLOCKAGE OF 40% IN MY HEART; NO TREATMENT FOR THAT, MY CHOLESTEROL IS HIGH BUT THE CRESTAR makes my joints and muscles hurt so bad I can't take that. One doctor says arthritis, one doctor says age, one tested me for lupus 3 yrs, ago. I have another appointment with another doctor. I am 55 yrs. old

Your symptoms do ring true for fibromyalgia, but only your doctor can make a definite diagnosis.
