Hillary Has Pneumonia


Didn’t someone float the idea that Clinton has Parkinson’s and perhaps the coughing is a part of long-term aspiration pneumonia?

Hillary Clinton has pneumonia, doctor says

NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, her doctor said in a statement Sunday after the Democratic nominee left a 9/11 memorial ceremony due to what her campaign said was overheating.

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia,” her doctor, Lisa Bardack, said. “She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”

Didn’t someone float the idea that Clinton has Parkinson’s and perhaps the coughing is a part of long-term aspiration pneumonia?

Either way, that photograph looks bad.  The incident looks bad.  If Donald Trump becomes the next president, this morning was the moment he won.

    Difficulty in swallowing is due to the progressive loss of muscle control in Parkinson’s disease. Coughing or throat clearing during or after eating/drinking, and feeling as if food is getting stuck is common. As the disease progresses, swallowing can become severely compromised and food/liquid can get into the lungs, causing aspiration pneumonia. Aspiration pneumonia is the leading cause of death in PD.

    Aspiration pneumonia can also result from a seizure and seizures can be triggered by having an infection such as pneumonia.
    Blue sunglasses (polarized) is one non-pharmacological method to try to prevent seizures caused by photosensitivity, videos or flashing lights. Hmmmm, where have I seen someone wearing unusual blue sunglasses lately?

    When a doctor uses the term “rehydrated” it usually means an IV was involved.

    The public has a right to know

      I don’t think she has seizures her symptoms are classic Parkinson’s movements and side effect from levodopa I am pretty familiar with both disorders. Her neuro needs to one clean.

      In fairness, LG; in peak season some respiratory allergies can be temporarily debilitating. The MD isn’t off base.

      However, it’s all the more reason for Hillary to release her health records.

        I can believe it could happen, I’ve just never actually heard of it, so I thought her doctor’s treating it as normal was a bit odd.

        And yes, pneumonia is so not to be taken lightly. I had flu some years back (one of the years that flu shots were hard to come by), and it turned to pneumonia. I have never hurt so badly as I did with the flu, and just as I stopped hurting all over I couldn’t breath anymore. Not fun at all.

      It is possible to get from allergies to pneumonia–I own that T-shirt. The progression was a gross exposure to an allergen (mold), leading to a low grade chronic sinus infection (missed by my allergist) with bacterial-laden post nasal drip, thence to pneumonia. Coughing was part of the process. In my case, it took about 16 months, but I was in my 40s at the time. I somehow doubt that they’d miss a low grade infection in her case; I’d go with aspirational pneumonia.

    When I saw that picture my first thought was to wonder if they were making another sequel to and/or reboot of Weekend at Bernie’s. Genderswap is popular these days, no?
