The heart: A viscus of cardiac muscle that maintains the circulation of the blood.
I deal with patients coming in with “a pain in the heart” all the time. Angina, I understand its physiology and I get how to treat it. I find it safe in a sense that we know what causes it and how to prevent it.
But with heartache, its a different story. I'm talking about that dull feeling you get when you're emotionally fucked.. some describe it as an ache, others as heaviness centralized in the chest. Right where the heart is. Its a whole other story, because there is nothing you can do to make it go away.. it takes its time and then ends with a scar to remind you, always, not to put yourself in that position again.
No physiology there. Just idiotic love.
