It may be because of loss of electrolyte / water , usually happens after a heavy workout. But, If you are facing the symptoms daily , Please, get your serum electrolyte check and also get a DEXA scan Done (that is for (BMD) Bone Mineral Density) and post tests as per the reports you may start with the essential electrolytes and some strengthening program depending upon BMD .
Next Steps
Please get your tests done as soon as possible. and Prevent falling , by being cautious.
