Our expert says:
You are a very perceptive mom - I agree with you, something is not quite right and she does have symptoms of anxiety. This is not necessarily caused by a physical problem, but could be due to imbalances of the brain neurotransmitters. Please let her see a child psycologist or child psychiatrist for an evaluation - children do not have the same symptoms as adults when depressed or anxious but may often present with physical problems like tummy ache, headaches or developing nailbiting or other habits. If she is very pale she may need some blood tests to exclude anemia too. Talk to your Gp or pediatrician to get a referral to a specialist for evaluation.
