It has come out that Michele Bachmann has a more or less continuing experience with potentially incapacitating (presumably temporarily) migraines. She has released a letter (the text of which can be seen at TPM) from her physician clarifying her problem and how she is treated for it. I am not a doctor, so I have no idea if the letter is sufficiently explanatory or not. It does sound as though the headaches are not a serious problem.
There is one question I have. Within the letter, addressed to Michele by her doctor, is the following:
Dear Congresswoman Bachmann,
If you expect Americans to support you in your bid to become President of the United States, I suspect that a great number of us would like to know just what the known trigger factors for your migraines are (just in case one of them might be, oh say, making a tough decision, for example). Could you please let us know? Thanks!
I’m sure I’ll be hearing from her soon.
