I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but don't feel the diagnosis is correct

I have been suffering with chronic pain in my extremities for 10 years. (lower legs, feet, arms and legs.)My pain in legs and feet are at times unbearable. I was tested for lupus, lymes and MS among other disorders, all testing negative. I was given a diagnosis of Neuropathy. However 2 other neurologists disagreed and thought it could be MS without lesions.

Do I need to continue seeing a Rheumatologist vs another specialist if my symptoms are getting worse?

For 10 years plus, I have been treated with Naproxen for arthritis in my knees. My pain and stiffness in my knees has increased over the years. Gradually, I have added joint pain in my knuckles, hips, shoulders, ankles and feet. Within the past year, I have developed numbness in my toes that vascillates between extreme cold and pain and tingling.
