At this time you can try to hand feed her any of her favorite foods and water. it is very concerning that a cat this age is all of a sudden not eating or drinking. The shaking of the head may indicate that the problem she had before has come back. If you can't get her to your vet, try calling to get advice about her and the medications that you have.
