Deconditioned?: I'm not sure why you hadn't moved for several months. I'm going to assume you were ill. Sometimes being sick for a long period of time and being inactive weakens the muscles. This is generally referred to as deconditioning Muscles need constant work to keep it strong. I would suggest a strengthening program directed by your doctors and physical therapists. good luck!

It depends: If pain is not involved, do nothing. If there is pain see an orthopedist and have it evaluated.

See details: No one can tell you exactly why without being able to do a physical exam. See your doctor or a rheumatologist and find out why.
