Hi,Thanks for query,
This does not seems to be paralytic attack and paralytic attack does not come so frequently.
Most probably you might got Hypoglycemia giving rise to all problems.
At this age there is possibility of having Osteoartheritis,Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia precipitating your problems.
Take branded Calcium,Vit A,D and other multivitamin supplements.
Take more milk.
Ok and bye.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

You have great muscular weakness resulting in paralytic effects, stiffness in the joints and difficulty in rising from a sitting position. These complaints are usually aggravated in the morning time and in rainy or cold weather.

Following are some Homeopathic medicines that will give good effect on your present complaints:-
1)     RHUS TOXICODENDRON 200 Take three doses every day.
2)     ARNICA MONTANA 200 One dose in a day at bed time.
A positive response may be observed within one or two weeks’ time. You may continue these medicines for two months.
