Weak and heavy arms, restless legs can be suggestive of the underlying neurological problem.
Peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage can be the common exxplanation.
This can be caused by diabetes, thyroid disorder, auto immune disorder, stroke, or even degenerative neurological diseases.
Hence, these conditions should be ruled out.
You should see a neurologist for full work up.
You can try certain natural supplements to help with your symptoms.
Vitamin B6 50 mg daily, Vitamin B12 1000 mcg daily, Glutathione 1000 mg daily, Alpha lipoic acid 1200 mg daily, Acetyl L carnitine 1000 mg daily will all be heklpful with your symptoms.
