Thanks for query,
It seems that your son is having weakness due to lack of good nourishing food and some vitamin defficiency.
But I think once you should get examined by your doctor to rule out any underlying disease.
Givr high nourishing food,calcium,Iron,and multi vitamin supplements.
Ok and bye.
