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

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