Weakness | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

Weakness itself may be a symptom. So when someone complains of weakness, the healthcare provider will need to know more details such as:

  • when the weakness started
  • if the weakness is in one area or affects the whole body
  • if the weakness is constant or only happens sometimes
  • if the weakness is more physical or mental
  • if the weakness came on slowly or happened suddenly
  • whether weakness runs in the family
  • whether the person has been or is currently sick
  • how severe the weakness is
  • Other symptoms may also be important, such as weight loss, fever, depression, or pain.
