Your symptoms can be due to fibromyalgia. You need to be investigated as following;

1) Thyroid-stimulating hormone

2) 25-Hydroxy vitamin D level: Low levels can cause muscle pain and tenderness

3) Vitamin B-12 level: Very low levels can cause pain.

4) Iron studies including iron, total iron binding capacity, percent saturation, and serum ferritin

5) Magnesium: Low levels can lead to muscle spasms, which are common in fibromyalgia; magnesium supplementation can also improve symptoms in some fibromyalgia.

6) The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)

7) Antinuclear antibody (ANA)

8) Rheumatoid factor

9) Sleep studies

10) Antipolymer antibody assay; present in approximately 50% of patients with fibromyalgia. This biologic marker may provide conclusive evidence for a subgroup with fibromyalgia.

The other possibilities of the diagnosis can be;

Thyroid disease

Connective tissue diseases

Chronic anemia

Chronic infections like Epstein Barr virus

Endocrine diseases (Addison disease).

Chronic fatigue syndrome

Myasthenia Gravis.
