Fibromyalgia

Has anyone else been dx'd with fibromyalgia after chemo and radiation? All of my cancer ONC's just said it was de,ayes chemo symptoms and it was normal. My Rheumatologist sent me to a pain specialist who dx'd me with Fibromyalgia. So I have the diagnosis but there doesn't seem to be a treatment besides pain meds and exercise. How do you exercise when you are in a constant state of fatigue. I am one year past chemo.
