Scientists have said it isn't just sad things that make us brokenhearted. Happy events can also be bad for our heart. broken heart is actual medical condition. It is not just sadness we feel when someone we love does not return that love. We get broken heart syndrome when we are highly stressed. We also get it during emotional times, such as relationship breakup, death of family and friends, or loss of job. medical name for this is Takotsubo Syndrome (TTS). Researchers say people can get TTS, and even be at risk of sudden death, when very happy things happen. doctors who discovered this have called it "happy heart syndrome".

researchers' study was published in European Heart Journal on Thursday. Heart experts Dr Christian Templin and Dr Jelena Ghadri analysed data from 1,750 patients who suffered from Takotsubo Syndrome. sufferers were from nine different countries. They found 485 patients got TTS because of emotional happening. Twenty of these had TTS because of happy or joyful event. patients had heart problems after events like birthday party, wedding, a favourite sports team winning a game, and birth of grandchild. Dr Ghadri said our body and brain may think happy and sad events are similar, so both can result in Takotsubo Syndrome.
