In brief: Concern
New symptoms may suggest a diagnosis other than migraine.
A neurologist or internist would be a good place to start.

In brief: Talk to physician
Migraines can be very debilitating when they occur. If they happen relatively often, a preventative medication is sometimes helpful.
If they are infrequent a migraine pain medication can be used. Also, migraines can have a variety of triggers, so have her keep a headache diary noting both when, and what she was doing, previous ate, etc. Then she should talk with her doctor about the best approach.
