Do you mean heart attacks?

No! They are two different things.

Heart attacks are generally caused by a complete or near complete blockage of a heart artery. This blockage is due to a blood clot forming at the site of narrowing from fatty buildup (atherosclerosis) in the wall of the artery

In Broken Heart Syndrome, the heart arteries are not blocked, although blood flow in the arteries of the heart may be reduced.

How do i treat it?

Medication is the most common treatment. Medication will reduce the stress on your heart and help your heart muscle recover, and most people only need to take it for a short time.

Also the good news is that the heart muscle usually heals within 2-4 weeks, and most people fully recover within two months.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
