In brief: Headache causes
Her symptoms may be due to migraines - these type of headaches cause throbbing headaches at various locations and associated symptoms like sensitivity to light and sound and nausea and vomiting.
The diagnosis of migraines is usually clinical and there are both preventative and abortive meds available. Please inform your primary physician if headaches are associated with fevers.

In brief: Or perhaps migraines
Besides tension headaches, i would also consider migraines as a possibility.
Advise her to monitor for triggers (stress, food etc). Try taking some anti-inflammatory (like ibuprofen) early in the headache. Stay well hydrated, and work on that stress :-).
