Chelsie, Today, you found a "Trigger." Please make note of this: "The freezing cold caused pain in my legs." Remember this. So we can establish that *Cold "Triggers" pain in your legs. But the rest of your body was okay? Interesting. Do write this down and give your doctor.
If Cocadamal X hasn't "kicked in" within an hour, chances are it will not do any good.
What helps me: At bedtime, I use *Sombra Analgesic gel-cream over the areas where I hurt. Every night, I have *Sombra on my shoulders and back of neck, placing a T-shirt over the application. There is Warm Therapy and Cool Therapy. You can go on line at Amazon.com and order. The price does vary. Usually $12.00 to $17.00 for an 8 ounce jar. :-) And it can be delivered to your door. And use a disposable glove to apply the *Sombra. This keeps accidental getting into the eyes by rubbing them. Especially sleeping. And you should sleep much better.
There are also a lot about different foods, including food with gluten, causing Fibro. pain. I'm not yet experienced in figuring out a "Special Diet." Too much extra stress. I hope this helps.

I think it's a great idea for both the doctor and yourself. A lot of us suffer from foggy memory or difficulty getting our words out so it means you have a log to remember and if you have difficulty speaking as I do just show the doctor your log. Hugs and hope you now have the right doctors xxx

It's a great idea. your doctor will probably tell you to do that anyway. also, it helps to see if there is any pattern in what's happening. eg. worse in the morning? weather? there are many apps available to help you track things. But be forewarned.... it can sometimes feel like a full time job, because symptoms change to often.
Good luck
