Could this be Welander’s distal myopathy, a form of Muscular Dystrophies

I'm 49, have always been very active and healthy. Over the last 6 months my health has been getting worse. I have chronic joint paint which began in my shoulders. I now have constant pain in elbows, wrists, fingers, finger nails, back, hips, knees, ankles, toes, EVERYWHERE. Suddenly last week I am now unable to walk without horrible pain in my heels and ankles. My doctor has said I have fibromyalgia, but I wasn't aware this condition eventually made it difficult for a person to walk. I frequently lose my balance and I am dizzy. An MRI showed no lesions. I have been doing a lot of research and now wonder if I could possibly have a form of muscular dystrophy. Some forms of MD do not manifest until adulthood.
