A constipated woman has temporarily lost 10 years worth of memory after over-exerting herself while taking a poo.
Fortunately, the woman’s amnesia only lasted eight hours.
Despite making a full recovery, the woman does not have any recollection of suffering from amnesia.
The excessive force exerted during constipation could have led to an insufficient amount of oxygen being delivered to the brain.
Although it is a rare condition, people who lift heavy objects are also at risk of suffering short-term amnesia as well.
Those who experience symptoms of memory loss after exertion are advised to seek medical attention immediately, and that patients have a 30% higher chance of suffering a stroke.
