This is Dr. David

does she drink caffeine in sodas?

does she play sports? is she drinking enough fluids?

sports can cause sore muscles and shaky fatigued muscles and also can cause low potassium levels if she is not eating enough fruits and vegetables.

dehydration can cause pains and shaky muscles.

She drinks soda every other day and she's very picki with her food
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

I see

the soda can give caffeine which can cause headaches the days she doesn't drink it.

if she is not eating enough fruits and vegetables, she may not be getting in enough potassium which can cause muscle cramps.

bananas and orange juice have a lot of potassium which can help her not have muscle cramps.

is she willing to drink orange juice and eat bananas?

that could help
