Q.

Daughter always tired

Hi

My daughter turned 6 recently. She always complains about being tired when doing pysical activities. She always slumps when sitting too.

If she does not eat breakfast on time she also feels nauseous and gets motion sickness on long car drives. Should I be concerned about her behaviour?

Paediatrician

There are several possible causes for your daughters' symptoms. the most likely two are an iron deficiency anaemia and the second possibility is abdominal migraine. She should be seen by a paediatrician as her symptoms must be taken seriously.
