Brief Answer:
Yes it can be due to abscessed tooth

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing in

Abscessed tooth may lead to lymph node enlargement which may cause weakness.
You need to go for RCT or extraction after getting proper clinical and radiographic examination. Meanwhile you may start with a course of analgesic and antibiotic.

Hope I answered your query
