A Very Confusing Year

One morning, in the Summer of 2011, I went to take a step out of bed and with that one step everything had changed. My feet were in so much pain, I couldn't support my own weight and I fell. I had to start walking down stairs one step at a time. Then it went to my hands. They would go numb, shake or hurt so badly I could not even hold a pen or a coffee mug. And then as if someone had cracked an egg on my head, the yolk trickled down over my entire body. I was always at my Doctor's office, to the point that when he entered the room, I would say, "hey Best Friend!" I was tested for Lyme, Lupus, MS, cancer, maybe I had plantar fasciitis. And then finally I had my tender points test. And at least I had my answer. I just don't know exactly how to feel sometimes. I don't want to complain because I know others have it worse, but I used to be this physically and emotionally strong person. I ache all the time and my mind is constantly racing. I feel like I need a vacation away from my body. I never want to exercise but the meds I am on have caused me to gain weight.

I just need help...suggestions as far as exercise or diets go, possible treatments, just to know someone understands what this is like.
