Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has released a medical evaluation report after an incident where he appeared to freeze and look blankly into space.
The frightening happenings where McConnell appears to freeze until being roused by staff have been caught on camera twice in two months.
RTM previously reported that Sen. McConnell froze when asked by a reporter: “What are your thoughts on running for reelection?”
Though McConnell quickly recovered from that medical episode, an aide shared with reporters: “While he feels fine, as a prudential measure, the leader will be consulting a physician prior to his next event.”
As promised, McConnell submitted to a thorough medical exam and on Tuesday released the report.
Fox News reported the exam included cranial MRI imaging and a “comprehensive neurology assessment.”
Dr. Brian Monahan wrote: “My examination of you following your August 30, 2023, brief episode included several medical evaluations: brain MRI imaging, EEG study, and consultations with several neurologists for a comprehensive neurology assessment.”
Bottom line: “There is no evidence that you have a seizure disorder or that you experienced a stroke, TIA, or movement disorder such as Parkinson’s disease.”
Monahan added that no new treatments, procedures or medications were recommended, but did note that McConnell continues to undergo “treatment as he recovers from his March 2023 fall.”
Monahan gave the green light for the senior statesman to resume his usual schedule this Friday.
Referencing McConnell’s fall last March, Monahan noted: “Occasional lightheadedness is not uncommon in concussion recovery and can also be expected as a result of dehydration.”
McConnell’s decision to undergo a medical evaluation and publicize the results has been hailed by many.
