An Aussie TikToker woke up with an Irish accent after having tonsil surgery and the story is wild!
@angie_mcyen also known as An Gie on her Instagram, developed the condition Foreign Accent Syndrome aka FAS after having a tonsillectomy. The condition has affected 100 people since the discovery of it in 1907. Despite being from Australia and having an Australian accent, An Gie woke up from surgery with a full-blown Irish accent. FAS is a very real and mysterious neurological response to some surgeries.
According to Wikipedia, the condition we have discovered that of 112 patients with FAS, 67% were female, the age range of getting it is typically 25-49 years. Only 12.5% of the cases did the patients have exposure to the accent that they develop from the condition.
Right now An Gie is documenting herself through this wild story on TikTok!
