Headaches child

Posted , 2 users are following.

My 9 year old daughter has been having headaches since last Sunday so 6 days.

She came down stairs clutching her left side forehead; was happening after she fell asleep so i guess the pain woke her up. It is worse at lunch time and sometimes when running about at PE in school , she said it made her dizzy for a short while. as far as i can tell it is a shooting pain which spikes but then calms down. I think the pain is constantly there to some extent but it is spiking; up to a 9/10 at some points.

Anybody else out there with this child she hasn't ever complained before about headaches.

    Are the headaches still there? does she have trouble sleeping? any other pressure zones like chest? tingling/prickling sensations, and how is her memory? does she forget a lot of things?
