Why would cutting affect joints?

sorry guys silly question but i've been cutting recently and have definitely felt like my muslces aren't as recovering as well as usual. However, i guess that's expected on a cut. The other problem is i feel like my joints feel a lot weaker than usual? Why would this be the case?
