Thank you very much for the useful information.

Most common cause can be an occult infection, like a UTI. At your age, the classical symptoms of infection usually doesn't appear at first (like fever), rather other uncommon symptoms like weakness, lethargy, confusion, dehydration etc appear first.

Then other causes for weakness and difficulty in holding objects can be a circulation abnormality to the brain (like a clot or lacunar infarct).

At this point, if the symptoms are significant, then the best step is to have an evaluation done in terms of a clinical exam (including neurological exam) and some basic tests like CBC, Urine EXAM, CRP and Procal levels.

This will help rule out any infection, and if there is any, will be treated.

At home, have rest.

Drink good amount of water.

Juices, vitamin rich diet (fruits and veggies).

Honey water.

All will help.

If clinically indicated a CT brain can also be requested if your doctor find any thing significant on clinical exam, but honestly as of now, looks like a benign cause like an infection (bacterial or viral).
