Sudden Emotional Stress Could Lead To Heart Problems
A research has found out that a sudden emotional stress could weaken the heart. Confronting the sudden death of a beloved ones or failure in romance are said to be the triggering factors in causing heart related problems.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that shock could trigger a series of symptoms that mimic a serious heart attack causing severe heart muscle weakness, reported health portal Health Central.

Doctors call the condition stress cardiomyopathy, but it's often described to patients as "broken heart syndrome". It's usually treatable, and it rarely causes permanent damage, they said.
