Broken heart syndrome is a serious medical problem that can be triggered by physical or emotional stress. …

Personal history and physical exam. …
Electrocardiogram (ECG). …
Blood tests. …
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). …

But unlike a heart attack, there’s no evidence of blocked heart arteries in broken heart syndrome…..

Living with takotsubo?
Visit our Journeys pages and read real stories from people living with takotsubo.
Aparently takotsubo was diagnosed in Japan years ago but for some reason, research into it has not been forthcoming, possibly because the experts don’t believe it’s real.
