Singaporean Man Left Partially Paralysed & Deaf After Neck Massage
Sep 15, 2012 16:03
A 40-year-old banker from Singapore claims to have suffered a stroke after a particularly pain neck message from a masseuse in China.
The man, known as Mr Lin, says he had gone for the massage during a business trip there. He says he felt fine after the massage. It was only 3
days later that he suddenly felt a sharp pain in the left side of his
head, and woke up to find that his left ear was deaf. Lin was taken to a
hospital in Hong Kong where he was hospitalized for about two weeks until doctors
deemed him fit to fly home.
He is now deaf in one ear and is undergoing therapy to regain movement in the left half of his body. His doctors believe that the massage therapist might have torn the vascular wall of an artery accidentally by using too much force, and the resulting blockage disrupted the blood flow and eventually led to a stroke.
