Joint pain and stiffness, is it autoimmune?

I have seen this video. Heartbreaking because I too have had the same experience with Doctors. They see me come in and I am young and appear healthy under all the make up! They assume I making it up or my mind is "causing" these symptoms. I went to this one Dr and in 1 month diagnosed my first with Fibromyalgia (just to give me a diagnoses) and I knew it was not the case so I pushed for them to dig deep, if he couldnt without a doubt say I have Fibromyalgia then I don't want to just try a handful of medicines that have lots of side effects some of which I already have! Then by next appointment he said I probably have conversion syndrome that I am suppressing something so deep I'm causing my body pain. Then last appointment with him 4 days post total hysterectomy he tells me I hurt all over because all I do is lay around! I'm thinking he was mad because I did not take the psych meds he wanted me to try because they do a good job in helping with the pain(mask the pain!) I brought in my natural supplements that do the same thing just naturally. Until I have a confirmed diagnoses not sure I want to try any man made medicine. Sometimes Drs are quick to pull out RX pad and start writing instead of digging and then questioning WHY, WHY are these symptoms happening.

@carsonamy07 On this strip we all have our horror stories about doctors. My echo tech pointed out to me that my pancreas tail was much larger than it was suppose to be. When my cardiologist saw that, he said it was impossible, and an equipment failure, so he erased the report off the computer. That single piece of BS cost me a chance to get my diagnosis straight.
