Chest pain when sad
I m experiencing a weird problem of severe pain in the chest when m disheartened or sad. I am suffering from this since my childhood but it happened very less, Only when i was very sad. But from past two weeks my boyfriend was really ill. And due to tension and imagining him in such a pain my chest pains hiked. I could not even sleep at night. Now that he is recovering and is ok but whenever i think about his pain and suffering i feel this pain again and again. And now as this is becoming very frequent m getting worried. I hv read several articles on the internet and may be this is called broken heart syndrome. What should i do? Is this normal and happens to ppl ?
