Not clear why you ponder a "brain tumor" with a reassuringly normal CAT scan. More likely, the reported symptoms are consistent with migraine events, and you are advised to seek consultation with a pediatric neurologist ASAP. All of this can potentially be controlled and reversed.

Please see a Neurologist, have a migraine treatment plan, keep your daughter well hydrated. Monitor temperature and breathing. Her balance problem requires attention and a stroke should be ruled out.
