Link between Photic sneezing and migraines? Answered

I sneeze when I look at the sun. Babies almost universally do this, but I continued into adulthood. My mom does it too. And we both have migraines. So I'm wondering A)Dop Photic sneezers suffer from migraines? and B)Do Migraine sufferers have Photic sneezing? Couldn't find any info on this in google.

I suffered with migraines well into my 20's, but never had a sneezing problem. The migraine problem was solved by adding 125mg of Niacin to my daily diet for about 6 months. It improves blood circulation through the capillaries.

I've done the photic sneezing thing (not so much lately, though), but I don't think I've ever had migraines.
