Interesting article from the BBC ‘Medics can mend a broken heart‘. Below are some snippets:

US researchers studied 70 patients with “broken heart syndrome”, a recognised condition linked to stressful or emotional events.

All these patients recovered, most after being given aspirin or heart drugs, even though 20% were deemed critically ill.

Even though symptoms mimic those of a heart attack such as chest pain and shortness of breath, broken heart syndrome does appear to be temporary and completely reversible – if treated quickly.

Interesting huh? So for all of you broken hearters… take some aspirin… lol
