Hallo Irene
Have your thyroid functions and insulin levels tested - it may be one of these causing the weight problem. Sore breasts are usually caused by fluctuating esterogen levels - you may not menstruate but you may have had a bit of an esterogen spike. Try Vit B6 100mg per day and Voltaren gel for the sore nipples.
