Medical science seems to think that old tale have some validity. If you look at some people who loose spouses, if they had a really strong relationship, the living spouse dies soon afterward. I have had a major broken heart and I remember I literally had bad chest pains for a while. I physically hurt along with the emotional pain and suffering. So yes, it certainly is possible.
