Brief Answer:
Hello. She requires evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the query.

So with a history of generalized body pains, loss of weight and appetite she requires evaluation for:

Vitamin D deficiency
Osteoporosis and osteopenia
Any occult malignancy
Thyroid disorders
She needs vit D levels, dexa scan, tumor markers like ca 19.9, cea, thyroid function test and a petct if required.

Discuss these issues with your doctor. I think we will be able to diagnose her problem.

Thanks and regards
