Suggest treatment for tremors post pneumonia treatment

my daughter has not been feeling well since after having pneumonia. She is now having hand tremors and sweaty hands. Is there a blood test I should ask for when taking her in to get checked out. Today she said that she felt that her legs were going to give out.

As per your clinical history is concerned, please follow like this:

1) Do a clinical examination by your Doctor and do few investigations like [CBC with differential, Folate and vitamin B-12 levels in blood].

2) Discuss with your Doctor [folic acid, vitamin C tabs and vitamin B 12 injections].

Do follow lifestyle modifications like this:

1) Take foods rich in folate which include dark green leafy vegetables, Nuts enriched grain products, such as bread, cereal, pasta and rice, Fruits and fruit juices et cetera
