she has not had any test done. On Saturday, in the morning she was fine. come afternoon, shes almost crying to me saying she was not feeling good. I thought maybe its her allergies. So i gave her, her allergy meds. and her inhaler. but nothing worked. I was thinking that her asthma. I dont know anymore...
she has not had any fever nor swelling.
Pediatrician: Dr. Saha, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for her symptoms.
Weak feeling can be from a few causes.
There can be dehydration, electrolyte changes.
Anemia or low hemoglobin, vitamin deficiency can cause it.
If she feels it in legs only then a neurological issue should be ruled out.
I would suggest to take her to doctor.
Blood work can be taken after examination.
Please give her plenty of fluid.
Pedialyte can be given.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish her early recovery.

she is a very picky eater..We do not eat meat in the home, but we do eat fish, Julia on the other hand does not eat any of it. She eats her organic mac and cheese, soy hot dogs, kettle corn, plus things that are spicy...just simple things....She has a terrible tummy. shes lactose intolerant, pretty strong. I have her taking lactaid pills every time she eats, because of her tummy. She is on a multitude of vitamins. The flinstones that have iron. and another type for kids who are vegan. I also give her, B12. 1 spray a day.
Pediatrician: Dr. Saha, Doctor replied 3 months ago

She is taking the supplements already.

It is good.

She would need an examination if she continues to complain of weakness.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
