Hi, The reason for your weakness could be your over weight, may be due to diet pattern after the deliveries.
Try to minimise your weight by making yoga, exercises, walking, and restricting the fatty foods, meet, and oily foods like fries etc.
Take more of green leafy vegetables pulses, sprouts, and proteine foods, besides your routine medicines. Thank you.
