Researchers at the Paris Diderot University found a link between colicky babies and adult migraines (in the babies as they become adults, not their parents. Although I imagine there may be a correlation there as well.) Infantile colic is a common cause of crying that cannot be quieted during the first months of life. This is thought to be a pain syndrome. Migraine are a common cause of headache pain in children and adults. I was an inconsolable crier, my mother reminds me any chance she gets. I also suffered bad headaches all through my childhood, they were never diagnosed with migraines. I also was treated for chronic sinusitis for years as an adult, until I diagnosed myself with cluster headaches and got the doctor to prescribe caffergot for me. The caffergot, cleared the dagger like pain in my head up quite effectively, confirming my diagnosis. I feel it's likely that I had been suffering from cluster headaches all my life. I find the correlation interesting. The study admits that further longitudinal studies are necessary, but I is is certainly suggestive. I recommend reading this article.
