In brief: Take meds,follow up
Broken heart syndrome is more common in women and in diabetics.
While most people recover the heart function with time occasional fatalities can occur from arrhythmias and severe heart failure. It is important to be monitored in the hospital in the initial stages, take medications prescribed regularly and have a follow up echo to look for improvement of heart pump function.

In brief: Not sure
Broken heart syndrome or transient apical ballooning or takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a usually transient finding where the bottom part of the heart becomes suddenly weak.
It often presents with chest pain and mimics a heart attack. Agressive medical therapy is warranted and most people make a full recover.
