could heart palpitations be a symptom of myelofibrosis?

That is possible: Severe anemia can result from myelofibrosis and the anemia can result in your heart beating rapidly and more forcibly so the answer is yes.

Possibly: This would not be an early sign of this problem. As you know, this condition can cause an anemia and this could cause your heart to beat faster, but your would have to be very anemic to experience palpitations. If you are concerned get it check out by your doctor.
