What A Broken Heart Truly Feels Like

Everyone always say that a broken heart feels like a thousand needles stabbing you in the heart. That may be far off though.

According to a new study, the pain of heartache is similar to the physical pain of spilling hot coffee on your lap.

 

 

Researchers according to Bloomberg.com from Columbia University found that the brain’s reaction to seeing pictures of an ex was the same as when intense heat was applied to the arm. Apparently the feeling of rejection causes a reaction in the same part of the brain that senses physical pain.

“There may be something special about rejection,” said study author Edward Smith, a psychology professor at Columbia. “No other negative emotion, not anger and not fear, elicits reactions in the pain matrix of the brain.”
