One thing that immediately strikes me when I was going through your symptoms is hypothyroidism.Symptoms of hypothyroidism are fatigue,depression,weight gain,cold intolerance,dry, coarse hair and skin,constipation
,muscle cramps,decreased concentration,vague aches and pains,joint pains,numbness and tingling ,palpitation and swelling of the legs.

I feel that you should consult a physician and get yourself and your thyroid hormone levels(T3,T4,TSH) evaluated.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
