Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Which part of the head does hurt?

Did she have recent cold and cough?

Is there any other symptom?

Is she 6 years old?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She says the full head hurts
No recent cold or cough
No other symptoms that I can notice
She turned 6 in October
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the input.

Headache can occur in small children without any underlying cause.

Vision problem can cause headache.

Sometimes sinus infection can be a factor though she does not have cough, nasal discharge.

As it is happening regularly, I would advise to take her to the pediatrician.

I hope this information will be helpful.

I was thinking of calling her doctor on Monday morning, but needed some advise since it just happened this evening.
Feels like the pain goes away once on an upright position, and once bend down, hurts again. I check d her vision before and looks like it's perfect. And as for the sinus,she breaths normal and without trying.

How is she feeling now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She feels good. The headaches were never constant, so she hasn't been complaining since my text to you
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

As she is not feeling any symptom now, you can wait & watch.

If the symptoms return, I would advise to get her examined by doctor.
