I think you should see a rheumatologist. Your symptoms sound like FMS and that would be the type of doctor you need to see to be sure. Let us know how you are doing.

Thanks for your answer i will see gp in the week and see if he can refer me again as it has been about three years since i saw the last rheumy

I agree, you need a good rheumatologist. And your symptoms sure sound like FMS to me too. Tell them of what you suspect it is and then let them rule out things and varify.

It is important that you see a good rheumatologist that knows about fibro. Your symptoms certainly sound like you may have it and working with a good rheum will help you. This forum is also great therapy, so I encourage you to visit it often. Good luck.
