Yes: I trust you do not overdo alcohol. One of the medicines you are taking may be bothering your liver, or less likely your skeletal muscles. Your physician knows your overall health and will perhaps wish to check your for hepatitis b, hepatitis c, hemochromatosis (don't miss this one), wilson's (maybe) & a few others. It may simply be a warning that a fitness-focused lifestyle would greatly help you.
