MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Not everyone will celebrate Valentine's Day and it's not always because of a failed relationship.

Doctors say Broken Heart Syndrome is a serious medical condition. When you go through a devastating break-up or your spouse dies, doctors say Broken Heart Syndrome can cause your heart to temporarily enlarge.

In rare instances, it can cause death.

Dr. Dwight Dishmon, cardiologist with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, discusses Broken Heart Syndrome with FOX13 News anchor Mearl Purvis.
