Unhappy Imitrex and muscle weakness

I noticed severe muscle weakness last summer and it has continued to get worse. It started with my legs, then arms and now in my back. I do seem to be worse after I take my Imitrex but my Dr. said it isn't possible. I take the imitrex 2-6 times a month, usually one 50mg dose. My migraines are usually caused by hormones but I get one from my neck once in a while when I'm not active enough. Problem is, I can't do much physically anymore. I have had numerous tests to try and figure out what is wrong with my muscles. I am scared that if it is the imitrex that the damage is permanent. I went a couple months without taking any and I noticed no change. I did not get better. Has anyone else had any muscle weakness taking imitrex. The med does work for me but I'm a little scared to take it now.
