Namaskar Jeannie,

Rather than going through the list possibilities for what this could be, she should stop performing Down Dog and Child's pose right now.

One answer might be to support her head with a bolster, rolled blanket, or block, with her ears level between her arms in both postures. However, I strongly suggest that she see her family physician as soon as possible and explain her situation.

This might not be high blood pressure, but it could be an early warning sign for something else. This is a "better safe than sorry" situation. Please tell her to see a doctor at once.

OM Shanti,

Paul
