Woman Becomes Temporarily Paralyzed After Getting Hickey

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooWacky, Tacky & TrueLove Line


Whoa! This is crazy!

A New Zealand woman was temporarily partially paralyzed by a hickey on her neck given to her by her partner.

The woman went to the ER after experiencing loss of movement in her left arm while watching television.

Doctors concluded that she suffered from a mild stroke, but were confused as to how it happened. Once they found a small vertical bruise on her neck near a major artery, they concluded that the hickey had created a clot in the artery.

The doctors added:

"Because it was a love bite there would be a lot of suction. 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. We looked around the medical literature and that example of having a love bite causing something like that hasn't been described before."

Wow! Glad she's okay! Who knew a hickey could do such damage?

    Total BS!

    There's a reason why it's never been described before: because it's NOT possible!
    Maybe she was suffering from other blood related problems already and this might have contributed to it. But it's not the main cause of her stroke.

    Gross. I have always thought hickeys were weird and brutal. My boyfriend is always asking me if he can give me a hickey but my answer to him is always "hell no!"

    "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."


    A stroke in the head(!) causes loss of movement on one side of the body… but NEVER a hear stroke.

    But this should've happened in the neck area… so possible Carotid Artery Blockage. But that can only be cause by a BIG cloth (which is almost impossible) … usually it occurs due to plaques or atherosclerosis.

    This story is BS!!

    "Who knew a hickey could do such damage?" Um, well ANYONE who's ever taking anatomy or even just basic biology in high school. My bio teacher informed me of this years ago. And YES it is possible. I mean hello, one of you main arteries is right there on your neck.

    And the purpose of giving or getting a hickey is what? All they do is show everyone that can see it that you had sex recently. Now that is really classy isn't it?

    Why would you want big bruises on your neck anyway?
