@macyjean – Hi Macy! There’s this rare condition called Polyglandular Addison’s Disease, which is a hormone disorder that can cause instantaneous death from sudden emotional stress (it doesn’t even have to be huge or anything – could be a scary movie, for instance.) According to one site I found: “To put it simply, sufferers are unable to produce adrenaline in response to stress. Adrenaline, or ephedrine, is the ‘fight or flight’ hormone that the body produces in response to stress. When the body can’t produce adrenaline, our organs cannot respond to stress sufficiently enough and so go into shock before completely shutting down.”
A lot of diseases in general typically occur in old age, but this one could affect even younger people. And diagnosis of this is usually delayed because it’s so rare and symptoms are unspecific.
So yeah, hopefully this helps! 🙂
