Brief Answer:
Hypothyroidism could be a cause.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone very carefully through your query. The complaint seems quite unusual. However, hypothyroidism could lead to such symptoms. I would insist you to get your blood tested for thyroid profile. Please upload the reports thereafter and I would guide you accordingly.

Let me know if I could help further.
