is it unusual for a 3 year old to complain of headache?

my LO woke up this am, a little bit off colour, didn't eat breakfast (I even offered her a postman pat cake - not the normal thing I'd do!!)

No temp, but grumpy, said her head hurt between her eyes.

Took her to nursery, she perked up a bit when she got there and they were going to try and give her some food.

Poor you, a doctor's visit could be in order. My dd has only ever complained of a headache once, that combined with a fever made me take her to the hospital (no GP's in Thailand), they tested her for dengue fever. I was pooing my pants as her Thai teacher's son had died of that a couple of days before. They decided she was dehydrated.
