Brief Answer:
Menopause

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma’am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but thi is probably due to hormonal disturbances accompanying menopause. In order to ease these symptoms, I would recommend that you decrease intake of caffeine, alcohol and refined sugars. You should also increase intake of calcium and vitamin d in your diet, eat more proteins, fruits and vegetables, exercise regularly and sleep well. if symptoms persist then you could take supplements such as primerose to ease the symptoms. I hope you find this helpful

Brief Answer:
A number of causes

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, hello again. Thank you for clarifying that but in patient details you have stated that you are a 48 years old female and the answer was according to that information.
However, since you are a male , then you should get a blood test for cortisol level to exclude its overproduction. Also you should monitor your blood pressure every eight hours and keep a record for a week to exclude hypertension. I would also recommend that you get a blood test for thyroid hormonal profile including T3, T4 and TSH. If all the above were normal then you should take an antihistaminic as citrizine once daily before going to bed as this is probably due to sinusitis. I hope you find this helpful
