Colic in Babies an Early Sign of Migraine?

A new European study finds that children and teens suffering from migraine headaches were far more likely to have been colicky babies.  Dr. Phyllis Zee, a member of the Women’s Health Science Institute’s leadership council, commented on this study: “the suggestion is that the colic may be an early form of migraine and that it could very well be head pain or stomach pain or it could be both.”  Zee also suggests that colicky babies often do better in dark, quiet rooms, as do migraine sufferers.  Though there aren’t any indicated treatments for colic or migraine in infants yet, this study has the potential to shed some light on colic in babies.  Read the full article on Today Health.
