My daughter starting having these issues with blurry vision followed with onset of really bad headaches about 6 months ago. They are now so bad she is vomiting because of them. She does suffer from seasonal allergies, she also has just started gymnastics were she is working her body very hard and is extremely bad about her fluid/food intake. I am trying to attribute the headaches to the above influences however I am a Nurse so my brain is reeling with possibilities that are not very pleasant to think about!!! So I was hoping for some calming down insight into this. My plan is to put her on a strict regimen of fluids and high protein foods for 30 days and see if the headaches/blurriness subside, however the Nurse in me is freaking out thinking if its something damaging then I am allowing it to get worse in 30 days time!!! ADVICE/HELP.......

Take her to the doctor. Why would you wait 30 days?
