A story is viral which is claiming that a woman in China “lost 10 years of memories” after going to the toilet with excessive force. As reported by Sky Post, a tabloid newspaper in Hong Kong, a son told the story of how his mother had been undergoing from intractable constipation. After helping herself in the bathroom, she found she suddenly suffered some acute problems with her memory.
Since that eight hours, she was apparently failed to remember anything from the past 10 years, according to her family. She had been taken to the hospital where she stayed a night and then her memory had returned by the morning the next day.
Doctors attained an examination on the woman and concluded that both her physical and mental health was fine. She was finally sent home from the hospital but still has no memory of those eight hours after she visited her bathroom.
Admitted, Chinese tabloid stories based on unknown blog posts aren’t possibly the most credible of sources. Fairly, peer-review medical journals don’t appear to be overly interested in the ins and outs, as it were, of constipation-related fainting and amnesia.
All of this makes it reasonably hard to confirm the truth of the story. But, it might not be as funny as it first sounds – in theory, at least.
