Broken hearts

Takotsubo syndrome is better known as broken heart syndrome.
It's felt to be a stressed induced cause of heart weakness-a cardiomyopathy.
Most recover but some succumb-die during the acute phase.

I also suspect many going through extreme stress/loss/grief have never been diagnosed.
We're the majority who just slowly recover.
