Brief Answer:
Possibly a case of hormone deprivation.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Going by the mentioned symptoms it seems that you are suffering from hormone deprivation. Such a thing is commonly encountered in perimenopausal or post-menopausal women. If that is the case, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) could provide relief. You need to visit a gynecologist to get evaluated and tested. He would be able to set up the right regimen for you.

Let me know if I could help further.
