I've had episodic CH for 25 years. I also have had palpitations all my life. 4 years ago during cycle I went to the ER and they pumped me up with morphine (IM). Some 2-3 hours later I twisted my body in an unorthodox manner and went into Atrial Fibrilation (AF). I had every cardio test known to man and all were unremarkable with the exception of the fact that the left atrium wall of my heart is above spec a bit.
When I am in the early stages of a bout, I have some pounding in my upper chest and lower throat. Also, if I turn my head down and to the left (same side as my CH pain) my heart with thump or skip or whatever.
Even though my heart is structurally normal I think you have something here. My heart is definitely in on the action during a bout. Respiration also messed up.
Just thought I would give you my specifics.
