I suffer from Mitral Valve Prolapse, but never thought about any connection.
I workout almost every day, except when my cycle is active & have had no problems with palpitations. I only suffered palpitations after my father died, and that is when I was disagnosed (with MVP) It seems the stress brought them on.
My mother also suffers from MVP, but has never had clusters.
Your blood pressures rises in response to traumatic pain, so that could be the connection you're looking for.
I think all of us here have one condition or another, and somehow we are looking to connect it to our horrible head pain.
The theory sounds good, but I think if our hearts were causing the CHs, we would all have other ongoing symptons of heart disease. This does not imply that some of us do in fact suffer heart problems.
Just my opinion.
Peace to all
