Broken Heart Syndrome
Persons who have nursed a broken heart may experience a painful tug in the heart. However, heartbreak can kill you, according to experts.
Heartbreak can lead to the so-called broken heart syndrome or stress induced cardiomyopathy, a temporary medical condition in which people suffer from sudden and extreme chest pain that mimics a heart attack.
Moreover, heartbreak can lead to depression that too much sadness pushed a person in a corner.
According to Maribel Dionisio of Love Institute Philippines, love is the number one reason for suicide. More often than not, crime of passion is the top reason for ending one’s life.
