 Are You Suffering From Broken Heart Syndrome Quiz?

Have you ever heard of someone suffering from broken heart syndrome? Is it even a real condition, or is it just made up? How do you know if you might be suffering from it too?
First of all, broken heart syndrome is definitely real. Sometimes explained as similar to a heart attack, this condition results from a reaction to your stress hormones following an extremely emotional event. It causes your heart to enlarge temporarily, which creates irregular rhythms. Although it can be severe at times, it is also treatable and something you can fully recover from.
So, are you suffering from broken heart syndrome? Take this simple quiz to find out.
