Broken heart syndrome does exist

broken heart syndrome


Researching online is one of my hobbies.

Today is Healthy Wednesday and  I want to talk of a rare heart condition which symptoms of breathlessness and chest pain are mistaken for heart attack and is known as Apical Dyskinesis or broken heart disease , occurring in 1 out of 10 people and it's believed that one of the causes is the increase of adrenaline, a hormone related to stress .

In this syndrome, most patients have abnormalities in blood vessels.

Other names are Tako-Tsubo or stress cardiomyopathy.

Preliminary researches indicated as possible causes at an emotional level, the death of a relative, discussions, bad news that may trigger stress to the patient, as for physical causes, existence of diseases such as asthma, fractures, substance abuse, severe pain among others.
