I think I have been misdiagnosed

I was dx'd with bipolar about a year ago. I do have the symptoms and the meds I am on for that seem to work most of the time (lamictal, celexa) I also am on Lyrica for neuropathy from shingles. Now I am having siezures so they added dilantin to my meds. I feel geeked out after taking all of these meds and I also have Ultram for pain. Pain is the real issue. I hurt from head to toe. I cannot stand for anyone to touch me in certain places. Certain places on my body are extremely sensitive to any form of touch. Even socks hurt my legs if they are snug. My upper arms are very sore all of the time. If I am touched it feels that I have been hit. Arms, legs, hips, shoulders, back. All of these places hurt in one area or the other. Does anyone have a clue what it could be. My best friend says it is fibromyalgia, but I don't know if that is the case. Does it sound like that to you? I also cannot sleep most of the time, but when I do go to sleep I will crash for 14-15-16 hours or even more. Please let me know what you think. I am really confused, aggrivated, and I feel as though my life will (at 34 years) old, never be the same. I used to love to be around ppl. and be the life of the party, so to say, but now I just cannot make myself go most of the time. I feel as though I am going crazy. I am tired of all of this pain....
