my mother is 54 yrs old. two months back she was admitted in a hospital with complain of abdominal pain. fearing UTI culture test was conducted but it turned out sterile. my mom was discharged after ten days ( pain had gone) . now she is very weak, when we consulted another doctor , the doctor told us that she may have some neurological + ortho problems. My mom cannot walk steadily for long and her muscles have gone weak ( visibly shrunk). my mom was pretty perfect before she was admitted for abdominal pain. her medical history is that she is a diabetic which was also a bit out of control.

With out of control diabetes, she will have her high sugar levels affecting all the systems, and causing lots of aches and pains, with weakness. Get her sugar levels under control and she wil feel better. Also get a orthopedic and a neurologic examination done in case she is not feeling better with sugar control.
