The authors examined a group of subjects suffering from migraine together with a group of epileptics and a group of controls, each subject being investigated with respect to car-sickness, periodic vomiting and recurrent abdominal pains. These three symptoms have been given different interpretations in the literature. In particular for abdominal pains, some authors claim that they are convulsive equivalents, others that they are migraine equivalents. The results obtained by these authors seem to support the second hypothesis at least when two or more of these symptoms are present in the case history of the same subject.
