Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Is there any family history of migraine?
Is there any history of vomitings in the early mornings? Is the headache one sided or confined to a particular area?
What is the duration of her headache?
Is she getting head hurts every time she stands?
Is there any relation to school activities?
Please provide the information to advise you in a better way.

Thank you for your query,
Your chid has to be examined physically for her blood pressure, neurogical assessment including her vision assessment and fundoscopy to rule out any headache related to high blood pressure and to rule out any intracranial cause for her headache.
She may need neuroimaging like CT scan brain after her examination.
So consult your Pediatrician for physical examination and for referral for neurologist opinion if required.
Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
