  • Preterm Labor

    A patient we recently treated for preterm labor learned to recognize contractions by the associated symptoms of autonomic hyper-reflexia: flushing, headache, and piloerection[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Increased awareness by the physician and the pregnant quadriplegic patient is encouraged so that symptoms of autonomic hyper-reflexia may be recognized as potentially indicative[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tocolytic therapy was successful and a favorable neonatal outcome occurred.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ergotamine Withdrawal

    An intensifying headache with autonomic disturbances occurs within 24-48 hours of ergotamine withdrawal and may continue for 72 hours or longer.[medicines.org.uk] Headache is also a recognised symptom of caffeine withdrawal.[medicines.org.uk] Ergotamine dependence can produce a syndrome of daily or almost daily non-migrainous “analgesic-induced” or “rebound headaches”, which are only relieved by ergotamine.[medicines.org.uk]

  • Benign Familial Infantile Epilepsy Type 4

    Headache and cephalic auras that may be autonomic manifestations may occur, particularly at onset.[emedicine.medscape.com] Brief apnea and irregular or heavy breathing is reported to occur in 7% of cases.
