Hillary Clinton’s health has once again become a hot topic of conversation and speculation in response to a video of the Democratic presidential nominee seeming to have a seizure on camera.

In the footage, Clinton appears to pass the strange occurrence off as a joke, because she laughs before seeming to seize a few more times. She then attempts to blame the “cold Chai” for the bizarre episode.

In late 2012, Hillary fainted and hit her head, which resulted in a concussion. During a follow-up appointment to the concussion, doctors detected a blood clot in Mrs. Clinton’s brain, which required the immediate assistance of anticoagulants (blood thinners) to remedy.

The New York Times reported on the specifics of Clinton’s condition following her release from the hospital in early 2013.

“Mrs. Clinton’s blood clot formed in a large vein along the side of her head, behind her right ear, between the brain and the skull. The vein, called the right transverse sinus, has a matching vessel on the left side. These veins drain blood from the brain; blockages can cause strokes or brain hemorrhages.”

Known medically as Intracranial Venous Thrombosis, the condition is dangerous and even life-threatening if left untreated. The prognosis for this condition is mostly positive, though not completely without risks, according to the website, Patient.

“Long-term follow-up suggests a generally good prognosis but there may be residual pyramidal symptoms, epilepsy, visual field defects and depression.”

Epilepsy is an ailment characterized by spontaneous, uncontrolled seizures. According to the website epilepsy.com, the disease is anything but predictable. It can affect a multitude of different kinds of people and is often the influencer of additional health issues.

Could Hillary Clinton be suffering from an epileptic disorder as a result of the blood clot caused by her concussion?

It’s not as far-fetched as it may sound.
