In brief: Question?

You don't seem to have a question.
You should tell us what the TSH and T4 levels were that shows over active thyroid. The symptoms associated with both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are non specific (so are the symptoms of fibromyalgia). Having symptoms does not mean that you have the disease. Fibromyalgia should be diagnosed by a rheumatologist.
