If it is your personal assessment, take professional opinion. There are several reasons for weakness.  At the 31 years of age we do not expect osteoporosis and weak bones. Get a physician examination done before going very for tests.

Common tests required to know the status of bone are-
Serum calcium, phosphorus, Vit D3,Vit B12.
BMD(Bone Mineral Density).

But even if u do these tests,u will not able to interpret the results.
Any bone disorder has to be ruled out.
I advise you to Consult General Physician.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern.
I think it would be better if you meet a physician first becaude after examining you, he would be having a better idea as to what tests are required.
Usually calcium, phosphorous, vit b12, vit d levels are done along with a Complete haemogram.
Best regards.

You should consult your physician so that relevant tests could be done after proper evaluation.
Usually Serum calcium, S. phosphorus, S. Albumin and Vitamin D levels are the basic tests u may get it done.
