My blood pressure was 145/80 Temperature normal, Oxygen 98%. Do not take any blood pressure or Cholesteryl meds. Don't drink more than one a day, don't smoke or take drugs. I weigh 190 LBS and am 5'11" tall, just hope is a residual of the virus I just had.

Brief Answer:
Hello. It should recover in a couple of days

Detailed Answer:
Hello. So likely a viral infection is the cause. These infections are self limiting and you should recover in a couple of days.
If weakness persists beyond that, you will require investigations accordingly.
