An Arizona woman says she has never left the country, yet she woke up one morning speaking with a British accent.

Michelle Myers was diagnosed with foreign accent syndrome.

The rare condition usually accompanies a stroke, neurological damage, or underlying health issue.

"They send in the psychiatrist at hospital and make sure you're not a loon," Myers said.

Myers also suffers from a condition that causes bruising and painful joints.
