Arizona resident and former Texas beauty queen Michelle Myers made headlines a while back after being diagnosed with a rare disorder known as Foreign Accent Syndrome, wherein she goes to sleep with a severe headache and wakes up speaking in a foreign accent...Aussie, Irish and mostly British.

According to the University of Texas at Dallas, FAS is often caused by damage to the brain from a stroke or brain injury. Other conditions have also been linked to it such as multiple sclerosis and conversion disorder. In some cases, no clear cause are identified.

She is one of only 60-100 in the world who have been diagnosed with this affliction since 1907.
