In brief: Needs workup

It can be as simple as needing eyeglasses -- or as critical as a still-curable brain or pituitary tumor.
This requires a full workup by a competent physician. Don't delay.

Nausea, vomiting, personality change, drop in school performance. I suffered with daily headaches for two years because my own pediatrician didn't recognize I needed eyeglasses. But Junior needs to be seen. Good luck.
