Hi,
Thanks for the query.

As your symptoms are nonspecific you need a detailed study of many systems.
You once consult general physician, get examined and go for investigations like:
-Complete blood picture
-Serum proteins, RA factor
-Renal function tests
-Liver function tests
-Thyroid profile
-FSH, LH, estrogen and progesterone
-ECG
With this workup possibly the cause for your problem can be identified and treated.

Hi,
You once go for serum prolactin levels estimation.
In case of hyperprolactinemia milk secretion can be seen in non-pregnant women.
If the serum prolactin levels are abnormally elevated, better to rule out pituitary macro or micro adenomas with your doctor's advice.
They can present with neurological symptoms.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
