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:
Your migraines occur infrequently and have known trigger factors of which you are aware and know how to avoid.
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.
