    I think the first step is to get her de wormed. If you go on amazon you can find some there.
    also has she been eating and drinking? has she had any access to moldy food?

    Try some Poly Visol without iron. You can buy it at Walmart even.

    Poly visol is a bunch if vitamins used when transitioning babies from formula to solid food. Have to make sure you get a non iron version. It is made by Enfamil.

    If you can't order online, go to a feed store, anywhere they sell farm medicine. Buy wormer paste for horses (Safeguard in the US) or wormer liquid for goats.The active ingredient in Safeguard is Fenbendazole.

    You may want to try soaking her in a warm bath with epsom salt. It perks some birds up. Make sure you watch her so she doesn't drown, and I like to blow-dry my birds afterwards so they don't get cold. Good luck.
