Just thought I would spout off a bit here... I have goiter from a bad thyroid gland and the swelling causes me to have the exact symptoms you speak of. Your bloodwork says normal? Have they tested your thyroid hormone levels? Low thyroid can cause body ache, lethargy, low stamina, and swelling of the thyroid gland (which can feel like the lump in the throat) among others. If you are getting tested, make sure they do a full spectrum of the thyroid hormone components, ie: T3, T4, enzymes.... because many doctors only run the basic test... which in many many cases, is normal, when actually, your other hormone components could be way off and never tested.
Just a thought that might help. Oh, and thyroid problems go right along with fibro... it's quite common to have hypothyroid levels and fibro too..
