Welcome to HCM
After going through your history its possible that may be due to hormonal changes at the age of 52 years.
There is is possibility of Thyroid overactivity also so visit your Gynaecologist /Physician,who will after examination will see are there any features to suggest Thyroid problem, and get your FreeT3,FreeT4 and TSH alon with other test and a Sonography of abdomen.
Future corse of action depends on result of your physical examination and result of your investigations.
As your period also came again and it should also be examined and investigated by Pap smear.
Take care
Good Luck to You.
