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,

Schuyler

I knew that part.. I was wondering why it feels cold. Unable to find the answer anywhere. I'm wondering exactly what is happening.
Health Professional: A. Schuyler, NP, Nurse Practitioner replied 2 years 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,

Schuyler

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
