Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose feeling weak, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time
- Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.
Step 1: List all Possible Causes
We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "feeling weak" as a symptom. Here are eight of many possibilities (more below
- Candida / Yeast
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Aspartame/Neotame Side-Effects
- Phosphorus Deficiency
- Magnesium Toxicity
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
very angry/hostile disposition
much magnesium supplementation
reduced mental clarity
frequent runny nose
very cloudy urine
severe tongue swelling
history of candidiasis
somewhat disturbed sleep
history of deformed toenails
severe muscle cramps/twitching
... and more than 170 others
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of feeling weak:
|Candida / Yeast

In the General Symptoms
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about general weakness:
Do you have a sensation of general weakness?
→ No / don't know
→ Occasional slight weakness but usually I'm fine
→ Frequent slight / occasional moderate weakness
→ Frequent moderate / occasional severe weakness
→ Severe weakness (almost) always, I can't function
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate general weakness, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as:
The sensation of weakness, especially muscle weakness, may be due to the loss of muscle mass seen in andropause.
A loss of 4-5% of body weight of fluid decreases the capacity for hard muscular work by 20-30%.
