Hillary Clinton can’t seem to shake off talk about her health.
Once relegated to whispers and rumors, Clinton’s health—or lack of—has now woven into mainstream media discussion. The latest piece?
A full analysis of her symptoms and signs, and a possible conclusion and caution, from no less than a physician, John Coppedge, and from no less an outlet than The Hill.
Coppedge, a general surgeon from Texas, wrote:
“Hillary Clinton exhibited abnormal eye movements during her recent speech in Philadelphia and they were not photoshopped. Her eyes did not always move in the same direction at the same time. It appears that she has a problem with her left sixth cranial nerve.”
Coppedge said the symptoms Clinton exhibits show an “intermittent lateral rectus palsy caused by damage” to that particular nerve, suffered possibly during her 2012 fall and brain injury.
He pointed to her known diagnosis of Transverse sinus thrombosis, a fancy phrase for a blood clot by the brain. And he went on, the Hill reported, to says that “almost all patients with a transverse sinus thrombosis suffer swelling of the brain and increased intracranial pressure.”
The signs of such suffering?
Headaches, problems with balance, and visual difficulties, all of which Clinton reportedly suffered, the Hill reported.
“Having previously written about this, I once again suggest that she undergo an independent neurologic exam and have proper studies to determine whether or not she still has a blood clot at the base of her brain,” Coppedge wrote, in the Hill. “It is too important not to get this right.”
