Increased yawning before migraine

My 10 year old daughter suffers from frequent migraines. The most striking symptom is that she yawns a lot before the onset of a migraine. During the migraine she's more sleepy but actual sleeping does not amel. The symptoms. Also, the headaches alternate between the left and the right temple. I've tried the following homeopathic remedies: Iris Versicolor, Sanguinaria, Spigelia and Belladona. Irisseems to be the most effective but it does not lessen the frequency of the headaches. Can anyone recommend a remedy ?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I would be happy to analyse her case if you have the time to give it here. I will post an extensive list of questions. Answer whatever is relevant to her (questions use the male pronoun). I know it is a long list, but you never know what detail will be the clue that unlocks the case. Anything you are unsure of (especially around emotions or thoughts) ask her and give her answer exactly. Your observations are important but her own ideas are even more important.


In homoeopathy, prescription is based on precise details of various symptoms from which you suffer. To tell or write to a homoeopathic physician 'I have a headache ', ' an eruption ' or “a cough” would not be enough. If you inform him 'I have headache with sharp shooting pains in the left side of the head and temple, these pains always come on when the slightest cold air strikes the head. I feel better by pressing the head very hard.” Then only you have given all the information required for making a good homoeopathic prescription. The success of the prescription depends; largely on how detailed your description of the symptoms is.
We require the following details about your symptoms.

LOCATION: Please give the exact location of sensation, pain or eruption. Also describe where the pain or sensation spreads.

SENSATION: Express the type of sensation or the pain that you get in your own words however simple or funny it may seem. You may have a sensation that a mouse is crawling or the heart was grasped by an iron hand or you may have a pain that is cutting, burning jerking, pressing. Express the sensation or pain as it feels to you. Try to explain the whole sensation in the exact way it is happening and not just the word. We need to understand the whole process of the sensation as it is happening to you.

WHAT MAKES YOU WORSE OR BETTER: Many factors are likely to influence your complaint. Some factors may intensify it and some factors may relieve the trouble. A detailed list of the factors is given at the end. Please refer it while describing each of your troubles and indicate which factors make the complaint better or worse.
