Introduction To investigate symptoms of autonomic dysfunction in patients with migraine with aura and without aura. Methods A retrospective chart review was conducted for 36 migraine patients who presented to our hospital and autonomic nervous system symptoms were assessed using the COMPASS-31 questionnaire in comparison to a control group of 18 subjects. Results A total of 54 patients, including 36 migraine patients and 18 control groups, were included in the study. Twenty-six of the migraine patients (72.2%) were female and others were male. The average age is 35.5 It was observed that autonomic nervous system symptoms were more frequently observed in patients with aura migraine. Discussion and Conclusion We believe that it is important to recognize and watch out for symptoms of autonomic dysfunction particularly in patients with migraine with aura to develop specific treatment strategies and to reduce associated functional disability.
