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.
