Brief Answer:
Vascular problems to be excluded.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns for your daughter.

Typically, migraine doesn't result in such symptoms, but migraine variants may cause focal neurological signs such numbness etc.

However, if the hand was cold to touch compared to the other hand, vascular conditions such stenosis of the subclavian artery, for example, should be taken into consideration.

It is necessary for your daughter to get evaluated by a Pediatrician, pulses and blood pressure in both arms should be measured and compared.

Imagining studies also may be necessary to exclude vascular problems and to achieve a correct diagnosis.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
