Muscles are weak

Question:

My muscles are very week and I would like to know what I can do to strengthen them. Are there specific exercises I can do or any medications to help? I teach school so I need to be mobile during the day. My legs get so tired that I can`t stad long. Then If I sit for a while my ankles swell.

Answer:

There are many reasons for leg weakness, one of which might be myasthenia. I would suggest a visit to your primary care doctor.
