Conflicting name explanation
Currently, the header includes the following texts:
It is the hallmark bulging out of the apex of the heart with preserved function of the base that earned the syndrome its name "tako tsubo", or octopus trap in Japan, where it was first described. It is thus named because of the popular Japanese myth that an octopus farmer once fell in love with one of his octopi, and upon being spurned he died of a broken heart

Star Wars; Padme Amidala death

Are these conditions the same or not?
I read a very brief article here on WP called Parasympathetic rebound, which sounds a whole lot like this condition. How does Parasympathetic Rebound differ from this condition? If it does not, then the articles should be merged and perhaps PR requests sent here? If they do differ, then an internal link is in order.
