Do You Have Broken Heart Syndrome?
The word “heartbreak” is often used when an individual experiences a traumatic experience, usually connected to the loss of someone close, either through death, divorce or a breakup.
But did you know that there is a condition called the “broken heart syndrome?”
Yes, it’s true! Here is what Wikipedia has to say about “heartbreak” and the “broken heart syndrome”:
A broken heart (or heartbreak) is a common metaphor used to describe the intense emotional pain or suffering one feels after losing a loved one, whether through death, divorce, breakup, physical separation, or romantic rejection.
Heartbreak is usually associated with losing a family member or spouse, though losing a parent, child, pet, lover or close friend can all “break one’s heart”, and it is frequently experienced during grief and bereavement. The phrase refers to the physical pain one may feel in the chest as a result of the loss, although it also by extension includes the emotional trauma of loss even where it is not experienced as somatic pain.
Although “heartbreak” ordinarily does not imply any physical defect in the heart, there is a condition known as “Takotsubo cardiomyopathy” (broken heart syndrome), where a traumatising incident triggers the brain to distribute chemicals that weaken heart tissue.”
Nowadays, “heartbreak” is more loosely used and is not necessarily exclusive to relationships. There are many situations in life that are heartbreaking. It can be used to describe disappointment in not being hired to work in your dream job, not passing an important exam, receiving bad news about the results of a medical test, and so forth.
But as you can see, it is critical that you get out of the grief that you’re currently experiencing in not having your ex back. Not only is it creating havoc with your emotions, but your physical health is also at stake as your heart is being compromised in a very negative way.
