Attention people all over the world. Next time you’re getting busy, be careful. The New Zealand Medical Journal reports that a 44-year-old woman suffered a small, but partially paralyzing, stroke after receiving a “love bite” from her partner.
The woman was watching TV when she and her partner began kissing. Shortly after the “love bite,” she lost feeling in her left arm and went to the doctor.
Doctors couldn’t determine what caused the stroke to the woman, until they noticed a small bruise close to a major artery in the neck. They now believe that the partner’s suction caused a blood clot that traveled to her neck. Thankfully, she is expected to make a full recovery.
