More details: When you say "weakness"...can you be a bit more specific. Is your ability to get up and about SIGNIFICANTLY impaired...as in paralyzed or nearly in the legs...or do you just mean..not feeling like walking about too much? And what about "not feeling well?" Viral symptoms or stomach upset or both? You may need to get a neurological opinion if your "weakness" is really different from other times.
