Over the weekend, I was watching my favorite TV series of all time, House M.D., which is about medical mysteries and a diagnostic genius, who is also a narcotic pain killer addict. One very interesting patient had Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy or Stress-Induced Cardiomyopathy, commonly referred to as "Broken Heart Syndrome." This is a temporary and often sudden heart condition brought on a person by a stressful event. Women are more likely than men to experience the sudden, intense chest pain — the reaction to a surge of stress hormones — that can be caused by an emotionally stressful event. It could be the death of a loved one or even a divorce, breakup or physical separation, betrayal or romantic rejection. It could even happen after a good shock (like winning a lottery), according to the American Heart Association.
