Hello, More Vitamin C is a good start but weakness and paralysis can have other causes as well. Sadly these things like internal infection, metabolic diseases and cancers all need veterinary care. I recommend that if the vitamin C supplementing does not help with in a day or so then you will need to have your pig seen by your vet. Thanks for your question
