5 Year Old With Headaches ??

User Profile
I was wondering if anyone could help me. My five year old daughter ava is having headaches. Like today, she woke up and had a fever and her throat hurt, and she also had a headache. Last time the dr thought she might have a sinus infection, and gave her medicine for it. And also i thought she might have strep throat cuz my youngest one had it last week, but her throat wasn't red or anything. Could a five yr old get migranes or anything like that. I always fear the worst because my sister had a brain tumor when she was five. But anyways please if someone knows anything let me know
thanks

Sherry: I would definately go and see your pediatrician. You need to rule out anything serious like that.
Headaches in a 5 year old (consistent ones) is not normal.
