Your daughter needs serious health evaluation. You may decide to talk to a GP where s/he would send her to an appropriate specialist according to the symptoms and maybe blood findings.

It is quite possible that there’s inadequate blood flow to the brain which causes burning in the head and fainting. Maybe there are problems with arteries in the brain and this problem should be dealt with.

Other possible causes of fainting are low blood pressure, hypoglycemia, heat exhaustion, hyperventilation, but there could be other serious illnesses that only doctors can determine.

People who are nervous and hysterical by temperament are more prone to fainting. Make sure your daughter sees a doc asap.
