  • Start a headache diary. When the headaches start, how long they last, what activity she is doing at the time, and location of headache. I did these as a child and it really helped the doctor help me. Don't just take her to see a doctor immediately because they won't be able to see a pattern so you may not get results that will HELP her.

  • I agree withkk. You should take her in if she has had a chronic headache like that.
