I have lumbar disc disease and osteoporosis. I also am a breast cancer survivor (10 1/2 years) I also have a balance problem and have fallen and had 3 rib fractures 2 years ago and a hip fracture a little over a year ago.I am also experiencing some hair loss. I did not think any of these things are related to my question. I guess you would call me a mess!!!!! (a little humor)

It might signify nothing.
Thyroid function needs to be checked.
If TSH is over 2.5 this can be the problem.
Even mild hypothyroidism could caused these symptoms.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
