Does anyone notice a Blood Pressure and heart rate effect on the intensity or frequency of a CH attack?

As the attack itself is vascual in nature, I would think that having a lower blood pressure would help. During my attacks, I can almost feel the blood rushing into my head.

My normal blood pressure is only 105/60 which is quite low. My standard heart rate is 60.

I'm just looking for any types of links to the pain. It may be that my abnormally low blood pressure helps keep the frequency of the worst attacks down.
