6 year old feeling tired, headaches and loss of appetite. Need to be treated?

my daughter is 6 years old and has been extremely tired for a couple of days now. She has been complaining of headaches that are bringing her to tears . she has a small appetite and barely eating. She looks kind of pale not so much drastic. All i would like to know is if these are symptoms of anything worse or just something that will pass? please let me know. thank you so much!!

Pediatrician 's  Response

thanks for writing to health care magic

a child of this age group should be bubbling with energy and should have good appetite.........of course appetite may vary and may decrease on one odd day which should not be a cause of concern

but why should she have headache which brings tears

you are also saying that she is looking pale..........may be she is anemic

i suggest she should be examined by a pediatrician and request you to get the examination done without fail

hope i answered your query

take care
