General weakness

Patient

Q: I am 42 years old and have been suffering from weakness specially muscular from childhood.I used to take a healthy diet but in vain.Now i am overweight also.I cannot write speedly with sufficient control.It is sometimes difficult for me even to write a half page. I have already done nerve conduction test but no abnormality was found. Recently i started to take protein syrup without any consultation and was surprised to feel energetic in doing my routine job. Though i used to take sufficient protein in my diet but i had never such feeling. so it means that i am not able to digest protein from my regular diet.so should i take protein syrup or powder regularly.Please provide me a proper help and medication.
