Question could this be fibro?

So I have had arm pain that has spread to my torso and now down to my knee all on the right side. This has been going for 6 weeks during which the doctors have tried strong anti-inflammatory meds, high doses of prednizone (about 60mgs a day), nuerontin and vicodine to manage the pain and nothing has worked.

They have run a gambit of tests, x-rays, ultrsounds, MRI's, blood counts, ANA tests, urinalysis...... but according to all of their tests I am perfectly healthy

Its gotten to the point where there are nights that I spend curled up in a ball doing everything i can not to scream (i live in a college dorm so it wouldn't go over so well) and had to have a professor call the EMTs for me cause the pain happened to move to my flank and they thought it was kidney stones.

I started looking on-line for more answers and fibro keeps coming up.........does this fit with my symptoms?
