What is broken heart syndrome?

People sometimes joke about dying of a broken heart, but you may be surprised to learn that the term might not be as far from the truth as you think. Broken heart syndrome, a little-known term to describe symptoms that resemble a heart attack, can create confusion and, occasionally, medical complications for New York residents.

According to the Mayo Clinic, broken heart syndrome can be caused by an intensely stressful or emotional situation, or it can follow surgery or a serious illness. Some drugs, including those for severe allergic reactions, asthma or nerve problems associated with diabetes, can also trigger broken heart syndrome. Also known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy, stress cardiomyopathy or apical ballooning syndrome, medical professionals believe the condition is caused by a flood of stress hormones throughout the body, which can temporarily disrupt the heart’s normal pumping. If you develop the sudden chest pain or shortness of breath that are symptoms of broken heart syndrome, you may think you are experiencing a heart attack.

Fortunately, most people who develop broken heart syndrome recover fully within a few weeks. In some cases, however, the condition may result in fluid in the lungs, disruptions in heartbeat, low blood pressure or heart failure. It is important to get an accurate diagnosis when you visit the hospital, not only to ensure you get the proper treatment and medications, but to prevent an absence of medical care or the wrong treatment for a missed or erroneous diagnosis.
