My concern here would be hyperthyrodism.

This might also be several problems. Lower back disc disease, and iron deficiency might also be involved.

You need to see an internal medicine doctor.

This is not self help.

This visit should be immediate.

Tests you should have

All routine labs

thyroid studies

iron studies

sed rate.
