  Purpose

This is a study to compare subject response and symptoms resulting from administration of three clinical assessments.

* The 3 assessments are

  1. passive upright tilt table testing,
  2. quantitative sudomotor axon reflex testing (QSART)and
  3. punch biopsy.

The comparison of results will be from two subject groups:

  • Group A, the migraine suffering patient with or without aura
  • Group B, the migraine suffering patient with or without aura who has diagnosed orthostatic intolerance (i.e.,feeling dizzy or faint when making a body position change).

Condition
