In brief: ? Migraine
Sounds like she could be suffering from migraine headache.
Is there anyone else in the family with headaches? The thyroid disease could also fit in if there is a problem with the pituitary gland at the base of the brain. You should see a doctor that specializes in headache or a neurologist. There are medications to prevent and treat migraine. You need to get a diagnosis first, however.
