Migraine, characterized by several autonomic disturbances both during and outside of attacks, suggests an involvement of the autonomic nervous systems (ANS). In order to clarify the role of the ANS in migraine pathogenesis, we have reviewed the major studies on autonomic function. The results of these investigations have been contradictory, suggesting hypo-and hyperfunctioning of both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
