I have recently developed a mild weakness in my legs when walking for long periods of time. It starts almost unnoticable, but it gets to the point where my legs just feel so weak and tired. It started about 1 week ago, and has not seemed to subside. To go along with this, I have been extremely tired, sleeping almost 12 hours at a time, and have had mild constipation.

I do work about 54 hours a week between 2 jobs, and am on my feet constantly, but I have been do that for over a year and just recently had these issues. There has been no change to my diet, and I can't think of anything that I'm doing differently. I am about 20 lbs. overweight, but have always been larger. I am also a smoker.

I'm just hoping someone can help me out, I do not have insurance and am unable to go to the doctor unless I know this is something fairly serious. It has been almost 4 years since I've been even for a check-up, so that may be part of my problem.

If you have any ideas or thoughts please pass them along. Thank-You.
