You deserve a big bear hug! You answered my post on the meds for Fibromyalgia and you sounded like you really need a friend, so I wanted to respond and let you know that you are free to post to me anytime, private message or note if you need to talk. Unfortunately, I am in the States so we are not close by physically, but I understand what you are going through and am here if you need a friend.
Hi, I wanted to let you know that my doctor has figured out the cause of my fibromyalgia. I am unsure if there are different causes of fibromyalgia. My fibro was caused by a blood sugar imbalance, called insulin resistance. Insulin resistance causes your body to be unable to utilize it's insulin. If your body can't use its insulin then you can't break down glucose. If you can't break down glucose then your muscles, brain and so on don't get fed. You don't have to be overweight to have this problem. Look up insulin resistance and see what you think. It is worth a shot.
