Brief Answer:
Rest, drink enough fluids and observe only for now!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about what your grand daughter is experiencing. There is no immediate red flags that warrants medical intervention. This is probably related to her periods and all I recommend now is rest, drinking enough fluids and monitor to report any further episodes. This should normally resolve spontaneously. For headaches, rest, calm environment and Tylenol will help resolve this.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
