Fatigue is really bad, should I see the Rhumatologist?

The Rhumatologist diagnosed me with Fibro. My regular doctor said that since I have been diagnosed with it that he can treat me. I went to his office last week feeling the worst fatigue I've had since diagnosed. If I stand to long or walk to far my legs start hurting and feeling like their going out from under me. The pain especially in my arms is terrible. The Rhumatologist put me on 60 mg Cymbalta once a day I haven't had any changes in the medicine yet. My doctor took me off the Cymbalta and put me on Lyrica instead. I'm wondering if that was the best thing to do? I'm thinking about going back to the Rhumatologist even though I can't afford the $40 co-payments but I can't work with the fatigue as bad as it is, and the doctor didn't schedule me to see him again for two months.
