Hello.

It's a normal reaction to emotional upset. It has no particular clinical significance. We often describe emotional upset and rejection as having a "broken heart." Of course, the heart isn't really broken, we just feel that it is.

Best regards,

I knew that part.. I was wondering why it feels cold. Unable to find the answer anywhere. I'm wondering exactly what is happening.
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 9 months ago.

It's just a feeling because of your emotional upset. Some people actually describe pain. Some have a hot feeling. You feel cold. It's not exactly psychosomatic, but it is harmless. Perhaps your brain associates the rejection with coldness. There is no specific physiological reason for it.

Best regards,
