What kind of specialist should I consult for muscle weakness in the legs?

I am a 66 year old male who has experienced muscle weakness in bot the legs and shoulders. This condition started about May of this year I used to play golf up to 3 times per week but as my condition deteriorated I lost all distance on my golf shots. I have tried riding a stationary bike and walking with no results. There is no pain anywhere what kind of specialist should I go to

Hello,

The symptoms can be related to many medical conditions.

I suggest doing a blood test, electrolyte level, and glycemic level.

Meanwhile, I also suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen.

I also recommend using a Magnesium supplement for muscle relaxation.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
