What happens to you after a heartbreak or broken heart syndrome

“It’s important to know that the sadness and grief of a broken heart can kick
up and flood the nervous system,” he said. “It’s very normal for this state of
hypo-arousal to trigger feelings of loss of control.”
The physical signs of grieving include:[14]
1. Exhaustion, muscle tightness or weakness, body pains, fidgety
restlessness, lack of energy
2. Insomnia, sleeping too much, disturbing dreams
3. Loss of appetite, overeating, nausea, “hollow stomach”, indigestion,
intestinal disorders like diarrhea, excessive weight gain or loss
4. Headaches, short of breath, chest pressure, tightness or heaviness in the


A broken heart is a major stressor and has been found to precipitate episodes
of major depression. In one study (death of a spouse), 24% of mourners were
depressed at two months, 23% at seven months, 16% at 13 months and 14% at
25 months.
Psychological trauma[edit]
In severe cases, the depression of a broken heart can create a sustained type of
stress that constitutes an emotional trauma which can be severe enough to
leave an emotional imprint on individuals’ psycho-biological functioning,
affecting future choices and responses to rejection, loss, or
disconnection. A contributing factor to the trauma-producing event is that
‘being left’ can trigger primal separation fear – the fear of being left with no
one to take care of one’s vital needs.

– Post traumatic stress disorder

Research has shown that in extreme cases, some who experience a broken heart go on to develop post-traumatic stress disorder.
