Hi !

Thanks for the query.

Fatigue & muscle weakness may be a symptom of your uncontrolled sugar .I think you should first get your blood sugar fasting & post prandial lunch & hba1c / hb /esr done and also get your bp checked, of course later u can  decide on for exercises , keep up your diabetic diet regulations as well

Good luck

Hi there!

Sore muscles can be causes by muscular stress/ overwork, inflammations, muscular degenerations, systemic infections, a few autoimmune conditions, hormonal/ endocrine abnormalities, micronutrient deficiencies etc. Without an evaluation and probably a few tests, it would be difficult to point out a single cause. It is best advised to consult your primary care physician for an evaluation for the above mentioned conditions. After a cause is diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
