Synonyms of "Symptom" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Those symptoms may be accompanied by headache. and Those symptoms can be accompanied by headache. ?
A: Actually, the incorrectness is referring to is in "ability" vs "being allowed", which is not what's being expressed here.
"Can I go to the bathroom?" - this is not correct, as the speaker is asking permission, and not about his own ability.

However, in the example given we have this sort of construction:
He may be late. - 可能性がある. This is not "he is allowed to be late", but "it's possible he will be late."

This is the meaning intended with "symptoms may be accompanied by ___" (it's possible that head-aches *may* also occur).
Given that, saying "symptoms can be accompanied by ___" gives us the same meaning--"it is possible".
See also "might".
