Bad batteries cause a multitude of issues. I'd give a full recharge with a quality battery charger and then retest. If it's over two years old, I'd replace it.

Sorry to hear. Back in the day the day I guess they just took a leg. I remember my grandmother in a wheel chair as a double amputee. She had some issue or infection so Doctor #1 decided to amputate.... and took the wrong leg. Sad state of affairs... May your future be a positive one (get a classic convertible!!! ... I love my '70 Buick GS).
