'Broken heart' syndrome: THIS is how stress can cause long-term damage to the heart - Express.co.uk

A broken heart can be more than just a bad feeling, but can be caused by feeling badly. Long term stress can cause damage to heart muscles. Although most people recover from stress related damage, there can be some long term effect. Scarring of the heart muscles and pumping action changes can be very similar to those who have survived an actual heart attack. The long term issues are worse for women than men because they live longer and the damage has more of a chance to show up.

Key Takeaways:

  • Broken heart syndrome affects about 3,000 people in the UK each year.
  • It occurs when someone experiences a bereavement or emotional upheaval.
  • It often affects women more because men tend to die before women.
