Hallo Dj
Headache in children is common and kids can also get migraine. It can also be caused by stress, anxiety, weak vision and low blood sugar levels. Danger signs are headaches that suddenly worsen, that is accompanied by nausea, neckstiffness, loss of function (talking, seeing, muscle function)or waking the child at night, You may need to see a pediatric neurologist to have her evaluated for migraine. Have her eyes tested to exclude eye strain. Also let your dentist have a look at her teeth, if she has a very skew bite this can cause chronic headache
