Anything Can Happen, Anything Can Go Wrong. - No good times in here.

The symptoms of a "broken heart" can manifest themselves through psychological pain but for many the effect is physical. Although the experience is regarded commonly as indescribable, the following is a list of common symptoms that occur:

A perceived tightness of the chest, similar to an anxiety attack
Stomach ache and/or loss of appetite
Partial or complete insomnia
-Apathy (loss of interest)
-Feelings of loneliness
-Feelings of hopelessness and despair
-Loss of self-respect and/or self-esteem
-Medical or psychological illness (for example depression)
-Suicidal thoughts (in extreme cases)
-The thousand-yard stare
-Constant or frequent crying
-A feeling of complete emptiness
-In extreme cases, death[4]
