Bone and joint pain, muscle pain, stiffness. Osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia?

I recently went to a doctor about symptoms like bone and joint pain and muscle aches and terrible stiffness, also sleeples nights of tossing and turning. Just feeling rusty and old all the time. My hands and wrists swell all the time after working or vacuuming or just any handwork, does that sound like fibro to you or osteoauthritis or something along that line? Ive had lots of those foggy moments also, by the way i am 43 years young.
