What causes muscle weakness, pain in body and difficulty in walking?

I have had muscle weakness in my leg, pain thru out my body, and have hard time walking later in the day. This has been going on for three months now. It started with numbness and tingling in both arms and legs three days after being sick and going to the ER from non stop vomiting. I have had tons of tests and all normal results except for a positive ANA. What might it be?

Hello,

The muscle weakness, pain in body etc that you are feeling after an illness can be related to electrolyte disturbance or weakness. You need to increase your intake of electrolyte rich fluids and see if ti helps.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon
