Broken heart syndrome has symptoms similar to a heart attack and can be caused by sadness and emotional stress

September 02, 2019 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

It is known that the mind has great power over the body and also how much emotions can positively or negatively affect the state of well-being of an individual.

Anxiety and panic attacks can simulate painful symptoms that are very similar to a heart attack.

However, there is also another condition called "broken heart syndrome", which is much more intense and not to be underestimated.

Usually, the triggering events are stress, shock, an injury or great emotional pain. Let's learn to recognize and manage this very serious condition.

Also known as "Takosubo cardiomyopathy", broken heart syndrome is not only a powerful psychosomatic experience but a real temporary deficiency of the heart muscle when the left ventricle, due to severe stress, can suddenly become weak and vulnerable.

The symptomatology is practically identical to that of a heart attack, namely: chest pain, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, low blood pressure, and fainting.

The effects are so strong that - even if temporary - not enough blood is pumped into the body, and in the most serious cases this can trigger the beginning of an actual cardiac arrest.

When faced with difficult situations, the body produces adrenaline and circulates stress hormones. In some subjects, this sudden and increased quantity of chemical substances creates a crisis for the heart muscle cells, which react by launching numerous warning signs.

Fortunately, in almost all cases, Takosubo's cardiomyopathy does not cause permanent damage or problems, although it must still be treated with adequate prudence and not taken lightly.

The frequency of broken heart syndrome has grown considerably in recent years, especially among the elderly, who are already physically fragile and more emotional.

In fact, this increase in the number of cases regarding the elderly has stimulated numerous articles and studies, some of which have highlighted the connection between the occurrence of this syndrome following the loss of a beloved pet.

As a matter of fact, older people very often develop an attachment to their dog or cat, comparable to what one can have for a loved one.

At present, there is no infallible remedy, but it is possible, in any case, to prevent such an event by attempting to manage the psychological stress with anti-anxiety techniques, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle.
