Colic may be linked with migraines, research says

The distressing nonstop crying of colic in babies is often blamed on tummy trouble. But now a study says the problem could be linked with migraine headaches in at least some infants.

Children and teens treated for migraine headaches at three hospitals in Italy and France were much more likely than other kids to have had colic in infancy.

Other studies also have suggested a link, and the researchers say if it can be proved, it could lead to new treatments for colic.

The study appears in Wednesday’s Journal of the American Medical Association.
