    What kind of doctors are you going to, and what kind of tests are being done? If these doctors don't have answers you need to be more proactive to find ones that do. Look on the Mayo Clinic website under headaches because they have good information about various types of headache pain, and what kinds of symptoms indicate what. You can also call the Diamond Clinic which is a headache clinic in Michigan I think, and talk to them about what your daughter is going through. They are expensive, but your insurance may cover it. That clinic is well known and will see your daughter on an in-patient basis, figure out what is wrong and get her on the right road for treatment. Less drastictically, find the nearest headache clinic, or neurologist with a headache specialty, and not any old neuoroligist, for an appointment. Do your research first, then make the app't. If your daughter is already sick enough to be regularly missing school, I would Google & call the Diamond Clinic, explain the problem, and ask them for recommendations. They are very helpful, and will give you good solid advice. Good Luck!
