xBox account American but live in the UK?

My xbox account is set to American and i don't know why, but i'm in the UK and my 'microsoft passport' account is UK so don't understand how its happened.. i have a lot of xbox points but can't spend them because nothing is in my region.. all i've been told is i'll have to make a new account from Microsoft.. which is truely *** seeming i'll lose all my points/game saves/ levels etc etc.

Is there no way i can change my account to a UK one? :(

how did you purchase US ms points ?

a UK creditcard cannot be put onto a US account

nor cna UK ms points work on a US account

only us prepaid ms points or a us creditcard can be on the us account

once set an region of an account cannot be changed even by changing the email address

Because i realised it was American so bought US points.. thinking all was fine etc.. But obviously not.

Proper ***, cannot be changed i want to be able to watch TV through apps on my xbox which i have a subscription for but can't because it only shows American apps...

Only way is to create a new UK account? Lose a couple months xbox live subscription AND loads of gamer points.. Think i'll sell my xbox and get a PS3..
