Pain all over my body.

I have had for several years pain that slowly starts on my neck and work it's way down my body to my ankles. When it first started in high school it happened maybe every six months. then when I was out of school and maybe around 21 it was happening every month and has been like that since. But here in the past six months it has been happening at least 1-2 times a week. The pain starts in the muscles in my neck, then moves down to my shoulders, shoulder blades, and arms. Then it spreads down my back into my hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. My stomach muscles, chest muscles and ribs are even affected by it. Sometimes I can't even chew and breathing is hard from my neck hurting and my ribs hurting so badly. If I rest for awhile and try to get up, I feel as if I have super glue in my body and can not bend or move anything. If I try to stretch and move around it just hurts worse. I fall a lot and my fiancé has to help me bathe. I can't go and do a lot of things and grocery shopping I have to ride on the store scooter. It takes about 3-4 days for me to be able to be active again. I eat healthy, and I get plenty of exercise other than when I'm hurting. I do have anxiety issues, but it is for the most part well controlled with medications and stress releasing activities. So I just have no idea what could be going on. If anyone has any idea to what could e happening please le me know.

You know that sounds like fibromyalgia.

If only the doctors thought so. I was told I don't have all the trigger points. But the pain is everywhere so I don't see how it's not that.
