Hello.Your daughter seems to be suffering from severe migraine.She needs preventive therapy in the form of betablockers,or Amitriptiline since her attacks are more frequent and long lasting.Massage for relaxation of muscles may help.Yoga ,biofeedback,herbal treatment and acupuncture are beneficial.Make her rest in dark quiet room.Also get her refraction checked to rule out any changes in her glasses number.See a doctor and discuss the possibility of starting above mentioned drugs.Best luck!
