    Link: Hickey Partially Paralyzes New Zealand Woman - A woman was partially paralyzed from a hickey that caused her to have a small stroke. That`s some epic making out.

    Gotta watch out for those emboli from he carotids. That`s why you auscultate before you do any neck manipulation. Keep those stethoscopes handy, kids.

    sorta misleading. The blood clot was already there. She would have had a stroke soon anyway.

    Wait you mean you guys don`t routinely cripple women by making out with them? I thought this was a normal thing.

    "He added the clot traveled to the woman`s heart and caused the stroke."

    Wow. I mean I would have thought that the clot would have caused a problem when it went into her brain, but no; apparently it went through the brain unhindered and back to the heart, and that`s where it caused nervous damage. Blimey.

    I thought clots to the heart were heart attacks and to the brain were strokes... Reassuring that people know what they are talking about!

    Also "sorta misleading. The blood clot was already there. She would have had a stroke soon anyway."

    It doesn`t say that, to me it seems that it is indicating the love bite caused bruising in the artery wall and the body attempting to heal it formed the clot.

    If this guy can do that from just making out, think of what else he can do to rock your world.

    I`m guessing the `had a small stroke` PRECEDED the hickey...

    a nod`s as good as a wink to a blind bat wink wink nudge nudge say no more

    This is the first time I`ve said this but: This is so fake. Blood clots going to the BRAIN cause strokes. When they go to the HEART it causes a heart attack. No doctor would EVER get this fact wrong especially since a stroke IS a blood clot in the brain.

    @Kalon
    I think you`re confusing heart embolisms, strokes, and brain aneurisms (which is the bursting of a blood vessel in a brain)
