General & Family Physician 's  Response
Your daughter's main complaints are 1) Loss of appetite 2) Stomach ache 3) Fatigue
4) Constipation (assumed as you have given laxative)
Treatment advised. 1) Haematological & X-Ray Chest PA View - to rule out Primary Complex
2) Abdominal USG (Scan) to find out the cause for the stomach ache
3) Treat according to the results
4) If all the reports are normal give her some antacids & antispasmodic - give her the food she likes -
Encourage her Social Activities - don't give laxative - If giving banana/drinking plenty of water/ fruit juices fails you can give drugs to increase the motility of the intestines & that too after stomach pain gets alright
