I'm not convinced it's over-achieving, Type A personalities that are tied to clusters, but perhaps rather the relaxation issue.

Consider the commonality of cluster attacks 1-1/2 to 2 hours after falling asleep. Yes, I know that coincides with 'typical' REM, but sleep is about as relaxed as you can get.

My first few cycles (17 years ago) were only one attack per day...always at 730 pm, after returning home from work and relaxing after dinner.

Think about precisely when you get attacked and see if there is a correlation to relaxation. I've never been hit while doing something active. I also seem to go into cycle shortly after ending a period of prolonged high stress. (Which is why the recent end of my divorce tribulations has me worried.)

Now, let's get BobP into the thread to shed his wisdom on the relationship of relaxation to seratonin and we might start getting somewhere.
