Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
I am very sorry for her problem.
She is likely having growing pain in legs as you suspected.
But headache with vomiting is likely due to a different cause.
Migraine can cause it.
There may be more serious issues like growth/ tumor.
Migraine is a common cause.
However, I would advise to get an examination by her doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
