Pain in Leg (20-something)

I'm not sure whether it's Fibromyalgia or not as I'm only a 20-something. I also had a turned in left foot that was corrected through a brace and special shoes. The pain started when I was around 10ish and continued up from my foot and now my whole leg aches almost all the time. I also have a genetic hip problem (grandma, mom, aunt and I have it) as it used to feel as if it slipped out of place.

Are there any simple tests I can do myself to see if I may have it?

I also have psoriasis could that be a factor?

If the pain is in just one leg I'm betting its not fibro. fibro is described as "long-term, body-wide pain and tender points in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, morning stiffness, sleep problems, headaches, numbness in hands and feet, depression, and anxiety." On the other hand though, it can occur in your 20's. I was diagnosed after years of pain when I was 25.

I have it in my left hand as well. Odd question but did you get sick a lot when you were a kid? I had mono about 6 times.
