Being 'sick at heart' is a common complaint in romantic novels, but can intense emotional pain actually damage your heart?

The answer is yes, cardiologists say, and sometimes it can be deadly - although thankfully this seems to be rare.

One example that made headlines around the world recently was Adelaide grandfather NK Paliwal, who had a heart attack and died upon learning his family had been killed in a road crash in India.
