I would go and visit a Rheumatologist with your query and symptoms as many of these do overlap with FM. Good luck.

Sounds like Lupus and maybe some other autoimmune disorder with a mix of FM. The fact that your symptoms improved with steriods, says Lupus. Also be checked for Lyme Disease wouldn't be a bad idea to be thorough.
