Unfortunately no quick fix for that.  Only advice for emergency I can give - rather take her to doctor for cocktail injection they usually give.  It's better to make sure that it's really a migraine and not something else.  There is an injection that you can buy at pharmacy and administer yourself, but only available with script from doctor, for it is dangerous to give when blood pressure is not right.  Good luck Mavis, I know migraine is no joke.

Hi there Mavis, up until a couple of years ago, I suffered very severe migraines,
and I mean severe! I found the only thing that would help with the pain was ice packs on the
head and neck with strong painkillers, and ice cold water and apple juice,then when feeling a bit
less fragile toast and marmite. Do you know that sweeteners and food colourings are bad for migraine
sufferers? Hope this helps, and your daughter feels better soon.  Pam
