Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
I am sorry you are having these symptoms.
you need to see a doctor and get blood testing to check your thyroid hormone levels
low thyroid hormone levels can cause skin issues and cause slow metabolism and cause weight gain
decline of female estrogen hormone after menopause can also slow down your metabolism and cause weight gain as well and can cause aching bones
you should talk to your doctor about hormone replacement therapy to replace the estrogen in your system after menopause to see if this might help your weight gain and bone aches.
you need to have a doctor look at your skin as well and check for infections like scabies or folliculitis
do you have a doctor you can see who can run some of these blood tests for you?
