I have the following symptoms & can't get my doctors to agree. At the 6 month mark I am FRUSTRATED. Does this sound like FMS?

SYMPTOMS: Fatigue (severe last 6 weeks & moderate 5 months before); Muscle weakness; Pain/Soreness-like having flu w/o other parts; tender & sore to touch; slight headaches with some frequency; Sleep Disturbance (sleep about 1-2 hours at a time, wake up not feeling refreshed); Difficulty thinking/focusing (and I am a PhD student); Joints stiff/sore--changes depending; dizziness/vertigo; IBS (combo, abdominal pain); Night sweats; TMJ; Depression (treated with antidepressants and talk therapy with psychiatrist--he does not think this is the cause of all of this); anxiety; recurrent yeast infections (more in last 6 months than I have had in my whole life of 42 years); sensitive to sound.
The other part to know is that I have visited 1-4 doctors weekly since this started in January and they have run numerous tests and given me numerous meds. Every (and I mean every) test has come back that I am as healthy as healthy can be. Additionally, most of the meds. have not helped very much...Any suggestions?
