A variety of symptoms referable to activation of the autonomic nervous system. When activated, symptoms include ptosis, miosis, lacrimation, conjuctival injection, nasal congestion and rhinorrhea. These autonomic symptoms classically accompany attacks of cluster headache, but also occur during painful exacerbations of hemicrania continua.
