  • I have heard that people can perish from having their hearts broken. A lot of times when people are grieving, they become depressed and even have trouble eating and sleeping. After a while, no sleep and hardly any food or water can really destroy the body. I have never had personal experience with this, but I have heard of people in my general area that have died due to their loss of a loved one.

    I hope everything turns out alright!

    So no, I guess you don't die. Unless your heart is literally broken (ignoring the chest pain or shortness of breath) or you're thinking of ending your life. DON'T.

  • No. You cannot. Sometimes you see this phenomenon in older couples, where one of the two has passed away- but there are a lot of other comorbidities to consider.

  • It could be a factor, for example if they slip into depression and become suicidal

  • I think it's possible. I thought I was going to at one point, and believe it to be true based on that experience.

  • Yes.
    If you are unlucky enough for several vessels to burst which leads to the other valves not working. Then that will lead to high blood pressure and cardimegally. Heart attack is the next step and bam you are dead.

  • It has been proven that you can die of a broken heart. It is highly unlikely that it can or will hapenn, but, it is important to recognize that it is possible!

  • I think its unlikely since all the time its heart which is not breaking , its one's obession, ego, value and prejudices.. True love never breaks one's heart..

  • I believe so. I think it is caused by weakening of the heart muscle due to trauma, depression, and loss of will to live.
