Broken Heart Syndrome Cases Are Rising-
It appears the hearts of Americans were not prepared for the emotional toll brought by the coronavirus pandemic.
A new study from JAMA Open Network said cases of broken heart syndrome are rising among people without the condition. Also known as stress cardiomyopathy [[ car-dee-ow-my-aa-puh-thee ]], it occurs when a part of the heart becomes enlarged and is unable to pump blood effectively after intense emotional or physical stress.
Similar to a heart attack, and COVID-19, symptoms include chest pain and shortness of breath. Experts say seek help immediately on feeling those symptoms.
