Hillary Clinton’s health issues could be highlighted at tonight’s first presidential debate. On September 11, 2016, Hillary Clinton had a health problem that was caught on video and forced her to leave a memorial service in New York City. Speculation began to run wild about what type of medical problems the former Secretary of State was diagnosed with. The Clinton campaign stated that she was dealing with pneumonia but many medical professionals online began to comment that she was far more sick than what was being reported.

Back in 2012, CBS News reported that Hillary Clinton was treated for a blood clot in her brain. Doctors stated that the clot in her brain formed due to a concussion that Clinton suffered. The clot was located in a vein behind her right ear. Dr. Lisa Bardack of Mt. Kisco Medical Group and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi of George Washington University gave a joint statement on the procedure that Hillary Clinton had.
“In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, the scan revealed that a right transverse sinus venous thrombosis had formed. This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage. To help dissolve this clot, her medical team began treating the Secretary with blood thinners. She will be released once the medication dose has been established. In all other aspects of her recovery, the Secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff.”
Hillary Clinton’s health remained a null topic until her “medical episode” from earlier this month.
Virtually all of the major news channels had medical experts come on and comment on what they believe was going on with Hillary Clinton. One of the doctors that felt comfortable enough to discuss Clinton’s potential health problems was Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Doctor Pinsky is a board-certified physician in internal medicine. An interview given by Dr. Pinsky was transcribed by the Washington Free Beacon. In the interview, Dr. Pinsky stated concerns that he had about Hillary Clinton’s health and healthcare. Dr. Pinsky stated that the medical care given to Clinton was decades old. Later in the interview, Dr. Pinsky flat out stated that he believed Hillary Clinton had brain damage.
“That is brain damage, and it’s affecting her balance. Now clearly, it hasn’t affected her cognition, but tell us a little more about that.”
Earlier this week, a video from Clinton’s campaign stop in Philadelphia was getting attention due an alleged issue with her eyes.
John Coppedge of the Hill gave his opinion on what he thinks is wrong with Hillary Clinton’s eyes.
“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. That nerve serves only one function and that is to make the lateral rectus muscle contract. That muscle turns the eye in the direction away from the midline.”
How do you think Hillary Clinton will perform at the debate tonight? Will any health issues be seen by the millions who will be watching?
