ADHD and colic

I have a 9 year old daughter who was colicky as a baby. She was diagnosed with ADHD with impulsivity about 2-3 years ago and is on medication. My question is, does anybody know if there is a correlation between colic and ADHD? I have read many support sites which have shown parents stating that their ADHD child had colic, but I can find no scientific proof. If anyone knows of a site or someone I could contact showing a correlation (or not), I would be very grateful. Thanks for your time and input,

I have 2 boys with ADHD- one was very colicky, the other was a very easy, pleasant baby.

Same with my girls. They are both ADHD and the oldest was wonderful as a baby and the youngest was colicky for a few months. Granted, the youngest's ADHD is also combined with ODD, but I dont think they are linked.
