User :   Hello, i am asking on behalf of my 13 yr old daughter
User :   Hi, thank you for your help I am asking on behalf of my daughter, who is 13. She has been experiencing headaches whenever she thinks of a certain vision. She also, above the headaches, gets a burning sensation inside and feels like she is about to vommit. She feels all of these symptoms when she thinks about the vision, and they last for 5-15 minutes, apart from the headache which can last from minutes to the whole day. Whenever the vision suddenly appears in her mind, these things happen. It is random, from when she's at school, to at home, to out shopping. She thinks that the vision may once have been a dream she ad, but she can't remember. the vision is of animals and characters from games, it is very strange. Please help tell me what is wrong Thank you
