Shoulder and back pain

I am having constant pain in neck and shoulders and lower back. I searched on Internet and read about Fibromyalgia. My symptoms look similar. I feel exhausted at end of day and it is not same as regular work related exhaustion. Do not feel fresh even after nights sleep. I feel stiffness of muscles around neck and more around face. I am not sure what exactly is the issue but it do not let me concentrate enough and that annoys me. Also I feel stressed. I am not sure if stress is due to this or this issue is due to stress. Please advise.
