Brief Answer:
You may be having early osteoarthritis of hips

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your query and wishing you Happy and prosperous new year.

I'm Dr. Sudhir Kumar,

After going through your query(however your query is very short) I concluded that you may be having early osteoarthritis of hip joints as your hips are stiff.You can get your x rays of both hips to confirm it.For stiffness mobilization exercises of hip will be of use. If x ray shows osteoarthritis then Diacerine and glucosamine will be of use.

Your second problem is muscle weakness of legs. You should get your levels of vitamin D3 as a cause of muscle weakness.If it is low then vitamin D3 supplements along with trace elements supplements can be of use.

I want to know that
1. Whether you have pain in legs or hips or muscles?
2. Whether you have other symptoms?

You can discuss with your treating Doctor about it.

Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Wishing you good health.
Take care.
