A doctor working with Rep. Michele Bachmann issued a note that declares her in “overall good health” despite suffering from migraines that must be controlled with medication, The Washington Post
Bachmann released a note from House attending physician Brian P. Monahan saying that he and a neurologist had evaluated Bachmann (R-Minn.) and found that the headaches were “infrequent” and well controlled.
Bachmann's campaign is increasingly attempting to tamper down the persistent questions about her health after reports, attributed to anonymous staffers, said she suffered from 'debilitating' migraines which raised concerns about her ability to be Commander in Chief.
Her health and a number of other controversies have flared up recently, testing Bachmann, whose campaign is at a critical juncture for her presidential bid. She had a good showing at a debate last month and polls show her running strong among Republicans and indicate she is a front-runner in Iowa, whose caucuses are the first test of the primary season.
