A study of mothers and their young babies has shown that mothers who suffer migraine headaches are more than twice as likely to have babies with colic than mothers without a history of migraines.

The work by neurologists at the University of California, San Francisco, raises the question of whether colic may be an early symptom of migraine and therefore whether reducing stimulation may help just as reducing light and noise can alleviate migraine pain.

That possibility is significant because excessive crying is one of the most common triggers for shaken baby syndrome, which can cause death, brain damage and severe disability, the researchers said.

"If we can understand what is making the babies cry, we may be able to protect them from this very dangerous outcome," said Amy Gelfand, MD, a child neurologist with the Headache Center at UCSF who will present the findings April 25 at the American Academy of Neurology's 64th annual meeting.

Study Links Colic in Infants to Migraines in Moms
Health Day News - February 20, 2012.
Mothers with chronic headache condition more than twice as likely to have babies who cry excessively

By Mary Brophy Marcus

Experts are beginning to believe some that some non-headache health problems in childhood -- such as vomiting and vertigo -- might be linked to migraines later in life. Now, a new study suggests a connection between mothers with migraines and colic in infancy.

Colic is a condition marked by excessive crying in an otherwise healthy child.
