Hyperthyroid cat - weak hind legs ;_;

My Simba, 14, diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago with hyperthyroidism, is on Methimazole, 1 tab am, 1/2 tab pm doing ok with that dosage. Occasionally needs Cyproheptadine(sp?) 1/4 tab am to encourage eating. His weight is relatively stable at 8 lbs, but I've been noticing that HIS HIND LEGS ARE BECOMING WEAKER AND WEAKER. What causes this and can anything be done to help my sweetie.

I just lost my cat, Mikey, 5 days ago from cancer and cannot have my only other cat leave me now :sad:
