Hi Tom, and welcome! Since you're new, you should start a new thread to introduce yourself--more people will see it there, and you should get more responses.
It sounds like you are having a really hard time. My fibro is not pleasant, but it doesn't seem as bad as some folks on here deal with, including you. My heart goes out to everyone who suffers from this!
You mentioned that you don't like to take pills, and neither do I. Some people do get by with just "natural" remedies, and there are lots of ideas and recommendations on these boards.
I've only been dealing with fibro for about five months, but many people here have had it for much, much longer, and know more about it than I do, so I'm sure you can get some good suggestions. Best of luck to you, and as I said, if you'll start a new thread to introduce yourself, you should get more responses.
