Doctor claims there could be something serious behind Hillary’s ‘abnormal eye movements’

Hillary Clinton has been exhibiting signs lately, including abnormal eye movement, that she may be experiencing some serious health issues.

When a local Tampa Bay reporter suggested Wednesday that the Democratic presidential candidate undergo a neurological examination, Clinton claimed there was no need and no precedent.

Precedent or not, more health professionals are claiming there may be a need.

The Hill reported:

She exhibited the abnormal eye movements at a recent Philadelphia campaign event, during which they did not move at the same time and in the same direction, according to The Hill, suggesting that she has a problem with her left sixth cranial nerve.

Contributor John R. Coppedge, MD, FACS, a Texas general surgeon, wrote for The Hill:

It comes out of the base of the brain and runs along the floor of the skull, immediately beneath the brain before coursing upward to the eye. Dysfunction of that muscle causes the striking picture of the eyes not aiming in the same direction and causes the patient to suffer double vision.

Like all things medical, there is a long list of potential causes but in my opinion the most likely one, based on Clinton’s known medical history is an intermittent lateral rectus palsy caused by damage to or pressure on her sixth cranial nerve.

 

Absent conjecture, it’s public knowledge that Clinton suffered a traumatic brain injury from a 2012 fall, and was diagnosed with a blood clot in the major vein at the base of the brain — a transverse sinus thrombosis.

Copped went on to question some of the treatments Clinton received for her injuries — as other physicians have in the past, and said that statistics would indicate that the former secretary of state’s transverse sinus is still blocked, resulting in decreased blood flow to the brain.

Two years after her 2012 fall and resulting concussion, Clinton assured ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that she had recovered fully and was in fine health. Comedian and talk show host Conan O’Brien spoofed that interview with a bit of Photoshopping.

But there’s nothing Photoshopped about her current condition — and nothing funny.

“It would be very helpful if Clinton agreed to an independent exam and to have the questions raised here answered,” Copped concluded. “It is too important not to get this right.”

But so fat the lady’s not budging, which begs the question: What is she hiding?
