In brief: Say no

Broken heart syndrome may have sudden chest pain or think they are having a heart attack often brought on by stress.
It is not a heart attack. It is the hearts reaction to stress hormones. If you have been to a doctor and checked out that you did not have a heart attack you do not need to consider this as a heart attack, however, you could write down broken heart syndrome next to that area.
