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

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