    When I fell ill my disease had advanced so much that I couldn't even walk.

    When I fell ill my disease had advanced so much that I couldn't even walk. You can imagine yourself that how much (I know "How much" is not correct but I don't know what word to use here?) it had spread in my body. It had reached up to a level where I couldn't even open my mouth.

    Please check.

    See above. "How much" was correct there.

    However, note that in many of your recent threads I have had to delete at least one use of the word "that". You need to concentrate on using it correctly.

    Also, the beginning is a little odd. If the disease had reached a point where you couldn't walk or open your mouth, you were already ill so starting with "When I fell ill" seems strange.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You may mean when I was diagnosed. Normally a person who develops a serious illness begins feeling bad - that is, falls ill - some time before they see a doctor and receive a diagnosis.
