Arizona Woman Suffers Headache, Wakes Up with British Accent

Michelle Myers, a former beauty queen and mother of seven from Buckeye Arizona, said she has never even left the United States, but she woke from a headache-induced nap about seven years ago to find she was speaking with an Irish accent.

Myers said the accent lasted about a week, but about three years later the same thing happened again and she woke with an Australian accent, which also lasted about a week.

Myers said she suffered a headache so severe in 2015 that her right eye went temporarily blind and she couldn't move the left side of her body. She was taken to the emergency room, where she woke up with a British accent that has been with her ever since.

"Everybody only sees or hears Mary Poppins," Myers told KNXV-TV. "They send in the psychiatrist at the hospital and make sure you're not a loon."

Doctors said Myers isn't "a loon" and she isn't faking it, she has a condition called Foreign Accent Syndrome, which usually follows a stroke or other condition that causes neurological damage.

Myers suffers from a condition known as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which includes rupturing blood vessels, easy bruising and painful joints.

The former Miss Black Austin Texas said the condition has changed the way she pronounces her children's names.
