The Biliranisland.com would like to clarify the confusion with regard to our previous article (NSU Student kills himself). We use the term “broken heart” as it appropriately covered all aspects that may had pushed to his demise. We would also like to apologize to the persons that may have had suffered .

According to wikipedia:

“A broken heart (also known as a heartbreak or heartache) is a common metaphor for the intense emotional pain or suffering one feels after losing a loved one, whether through death, divorce, breakup, separation, betrayal, or romantic rejection. “

Broken heart syndrome is a recently recognized heart problem. It was originally reported in the Asian population in 1990 and named TAKOTSUBO cardiomyopathy (KAR-de-o-mi-OP-ah-thee). In this condition, the heart is so weak that it assumes a bulging shape (“tako tsubo” is the term for an octopus trap, whose shape resembles the bulging appearance of the heart during this condition). Cases have since been reported worldwide, and the first reports of broken heart syndrome in the United States appeared in 1998. The condition also is commonly called stress-induced cardiomyopathy.

Broken heart syndrome is a condition in which extreme stress can lead to heart muscle failure. The failure is severe, but often short-term. The cause of broken heart syndrome is not fully known. In most cases, symptoms are triggered by extreme emotional or physical stress, such as intense grief, anger, or surprise. Researchers think that the stress releases hormones that “stun” the heart and affect its ability to pump blood to the body. (The term “stunned” is often used to indicate that the injury to the heart muscle is only temporary.)
