Brief Answer:
Get investigated as advised and upload reports

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
Weak muscle may be due to neuropathy, myopathy, neuromuscular junction disorders.
Is there any wasting, thinning of muscles?
Any sensory loss?
Any twitching movement of muscles?
Upload any consultation prescription with examination findings if documented.
If nerve conduction study is normal then get blood tests like CPK MM, thyroid profile, vitamin D, renal function test, liver function and blood sugar.
Visit to a neurologist for detailed examination is required.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further information.
