Cranial autonomic symptoms in migraine are related to central sensitization: a prospective study of 164 migraine patients at a tertiary headache center.



Cranial autonomic symptoms (CASs) during migraine attacks are reported to be quite common regardless of ethnicity. In our previous study investigating 373 migraineurs, we found that 42.4% of them had CASs. The patients with CASs more frequently had cutaneous allodynia than did those without CASs, and we speculated that CASs were associated with central sensitization. The present study searched for substantial evidence on the relationship between CASs and central sensitization in migraine patients.
