pain/no sex drive/weight gain/sleeplessness

I have been very concearned since I had a complete hysterectomy about five years ago. I had no hrt so I got the pleasure of going straight into menapause. After the complete hyst, I had to have surgery to repair damage from bowels prolapsing into my vaginal cavity, next came the cystoscope. In the midst of all this I had a back injury resulting in a bulging c7, t10, t11 and tear at t12. All of this fun led to DDD, severe IC, IBS and GERD. I have gained almost 60 pounds in the last few years although I haven't changed any of my eating patterns, I will admit I don't exercise like I used to mostly due to pain. Some days I feel as if I can feel every joint in my body. I'm sure some of my sex drive issues are because of the extra weight, but I have zero urge and have dryness. I have pain all over, however, the pain most disturbing to me these days is in my breast. I'm exhausted all the time if I'm lucky I get 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I don't have insurance so I have been seeing a doctor at a free clinic and not getting near the care needed to find a solution. I've been told I'm to stressed I need to have more sex, and loose weight. Pain hasn't been addressed, and no real diagnosis. I am very worried about my health and no idea what direction to go in. Please help.
