Your daughter's weight of 119 pounds is normal for her height of 5 foot 2 inches. Her blood pressure is also normal. You do not mention your daughter's age, but her pulse rate of 100 beats per minute is at the upper limits of normal. Ideally her pulse rate should be about 72 beats per minute. As she is complains about feeling tired it would be a good idea for her to be seen by your doctor. Thyroid tests and a full blood count should be done as part of the examination. Your doctor may decide to include other tests as well.
