Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted the symptoms of your daughter. I would like to reassure you that her symptoms do not suggest any serious neurological illness.

The most likely cause of her frequent headaches could be childhood migraine.

She would benefit from taking preventive medications such as flunarizine or propranolol tablets. This would reduce the severity and frequency of headaches.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
