In brief: Proximal weakness

Proximal muscle weakness caused mostly by muscle disorder rather than neuropathy, myopathy or muscular dystrophy presented with weakness of the pelvic muscles and leads to difficult walking, inability to stand up from sitting position without using the leg distal muscles, an examination by the neurologist and EMG or muscle biopsy may be needed for daignosis.
