Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HCM

The symptoms may be due to many reasons-
- It may be due to some nutrient deficiency. Low hemoglobin causes anaemia and it may present with weakness in legs and tiredness. Vitamin deficiencies as B complex deficiency may also cause leg weakness. So get your blood investigations done for Hb, and also Vit B12, Folic acid levels. If any of level is low then visit a good physician.
- It may be due to thyroid hormone abnormality. Low thyroid levels may cause weakness, lathery and drowsiness. So get your thyroid function tests done (T3,T4,TSH)
- Leg tiredness may be due to mild depression. Even you don't have any stress still chances of depression may present. So if every investigation comes normal then visit a psychiatrist for evaluation.

Thanks for posting your query,
The symptoms that you are having are likely to be related to benign causes like electrolyte imbalance,vit D3 and vitamin B 12 deficiency, etc. Most of the times these symptoms can be taken care of by taking electrolyte rich fluids.
Eat a diet rich in fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables, nuts, milk, eggs, pulses and cereals. Drink 1-2 litres of water daily. Do brisk walking exercise for 40 minutes daily. Get 6-8 hours of refreshing sleep daily.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful
