Our expert says:
Problem child, all your symptoms may fit in with fibromyalgia except maybe the hot flushes. The best would be to first see a specialist before you start taking treatment, but usually it is treated with a combination of drugs. You will have to take a long acting anti-inflammatory, Trepiline®, a good multivitamin and probably a sleeping tablet and something for your mood too.
If you live in or around Pretoria I can refer you to someone, but otherwise you can ask your GP to refer you if his treatment doesn’t work. Good luck.
