Can an MRV pick up teeth marks? :wink:

Woman paralyzed by hickey

A 44 year old woman in New Zealand presented with partial paralysis at Auckland's Middlemore Hospital emergency department; after examination, the doctors concluded that she'd suffered a mild stroke caused by a hickey near a major artery in her neck. She recovered after being treated with anti-coagulant.
"Because of the physical trauma it had made a bit of bruising inside the vessel. There was a clot in the artery underneath where the hickey was."

Wu said the clot dislodged and traveled to the woman's heart, where it caused a minor stroke that led to the loss of movement.

"We looked around the medical literature and that example of having a love bite causing something like that hasn't been described before," he said.

Hmmm. Maybe a poll on how many people with MS got a hickey when they were younger?

I hate to pick nits (blast, there goes another one) BUT
if a blood clot forms in an artery and travels to the heart, it causes a heart attack, not a stroke. To cause a stroke, it has to travel to the brain.
