Woman Wakes Up with British Accent

A former Texas beauty queen, Michelle Myers, from Buckeye, Arizona falls asleep with a massive headache and awakes with a British accent. However, Michelle Myers has never traveled anywhere outside of the United States. This is not the first time Michelle has experienced such anomalies. September 17, 2011, was the first time she experienced symptoms stemming from her diagnosed disorder, Foreign Accent Syndrome. She’s also experienced Irish and Australian accents. Foreign Accent Syndrome is a rare condition that occurs after a traumatic event, such as a stroke, neurological damage, or other serious underlying issues.

Although quite rare, there are other documented cases (videos) of people experiencing similar symptoms.

What do you think?
