Muscle tensing

Hopefully someone can help.  I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but I don't think this is what is going on now...I have headaches for years, several bulging discs in lumbar, cervical fusion at C5-C7, hysterectomy, rremoval of gallbladder, just to start.  I now have headaches all the time, fatigue (I have caught myself falling asleep at work), muscle spasms, IBS, depression, pain all over, and now (for the last 6 months) I have had SEVERE muscle tensing in my legs and arms.  I have to actually mentally relax them much of the time.  they are not twitches I have them as well, these muscles will be tense for several seconds or longer.  I am scared.  Not sure if it is MS, Lupus, ALS, or nothing.  If anyone has a clue I would appreciate all the help you can offer.  I currently take Cymbalta, Lyrica, Vicoden, Skelexa or Baclofen (I alternate).  I hurt all over most of the time.  Help!
