  • I had a friend that had the same thing to her daugher and it turned out to be related to stress (they were moving into a new home, new location, etc.) but she still had her checked out by a doctor.

  • Get your daughter and go to the ER straight away. I have no idea what could happen but it is definitely not normal and probably really dangerous. Do not wait one minute more.

  • Could be numerous things. I would be calling the pediatrician right in the morning. Could be stress, could be not getting the right nutrition ( my mum lost her hair when she was young from not eating well ). Good luck.
