DD had a headache for the best part of yesterday. I treated her with calpol and neurofen - she seemed pale and tearful at times sad . I made sure she drank plenty of fluids and we had a quiet day.

She woke me 20 mins ago, needing cuddles saying her head still hurts. Her temp is up too. I've given more calpol but am concerned. Docs today first thing.

First thing that springs to mind for me is a cold type virus with blocked sinuses.

Hope gp has got her sorted.

My two and I get migraine and I find a cold flannel held on the head works wonders.

Sorry for not coming back sooner.

GP was very thorough, but it turns out there is a virus doing the rounds that gives patients a severe headache for about 10 days. Poor thing is v pale but muddling through.
