Could this explain some of Michele Bachmann’s bizarre behavior? According to three people who have worked closely with Bachmann, the presidential candidate suffers from “debilitating” migraine headaches on a weekly basis that can “incapacitate” her for days.
Not only that, but allegedly she is constantly medicated to try to prevent them.
The migraines are so bad and so intense, she carries and takes all sorts of pills. Prevention pills. Pills during the migraine. Pills after the migraine, to keep them under control. She has to take these pills wherever she goes.
The headaches are so severe and so frequent they have put her in the hospital more than once.
A spokeswoman for Bachmann refused to talk about the candidate’s medical history.
UPDATE: Bachmann admits that she suffers from migraines but claims that it would not affect her job performance as president. Refuses to answer whether she was ever hospitalized for migraines. And today her aides “roughed up” a reporter for ABC News when he dashed after her with a camera and attempted to ask her if she had ever missed any votes in the House because of headaches.
