Brief Answer:
Rheumatologist is of good help now

Detailed Answer:

I suggest that you should find a Pain specialist for allaying the pain and then a Rheumatologist for management of the active disease, Fibromyalgia. Choose a pain specialist who has quick appointment. This helps your husband to be pain free till you find a good Rheumatologist. Once the Rheumatologist is finalized you can ask him to transfer all the patient records to his office from your previous doctor's office.

Since you are an elderly couple and Fibromyalgia requires frequent follow up with drug monitoring, I suggest you to pick one within 10 miles.
