Welcome to XXXXXXX

Going through the list of illnesses in these 3 years,
I suggest that anemia be ruled out which is very common at this age,
Secondly post viral infections ,fatigue is very common.
This will take time.

Good sleep is very essential for feeling of well being.
In kids of this age at least 9 pm to 6 or 7 am sleep in necessary.
Insist on no vido games,TV at late evenings and early sleep.

Good luck
God bess
