Expert Answer :
I can not explain her headache but her other symptoms may be related to a form fruste of vasovagal or neurocardiogenic presyncope. Common at this age due to high vagal tone. My feeling is, that all her investigations will be normal. You may consider doing a head up tilt test. I hope you have ruled out raised ICT.
