PRESIDENT OBAMA SEEKING TREATMENT FOR SORE THROAT, DOCTOR SAYS

Who says the US president is unwilling to suffer great discomfort and intolerable pain in the pursuit of his noble, “leader of the free world” duties? Not flashing red headlines informing us about the constant state of the president’s frail laryngeal area, that’s for sure. From Bloomberg:

  • PRESIDENT OBAMA SEEKING TREATMENT FOR SORE THROAT, DOCTOR SAYS

And from Reuters:

Obama, complaining of sore throat, diagnosed with acid reflux

 

President Barack Obama, who had medical tests on Saturday after complaining of a sore throat, is suffering from acid reflux, the president’s physician said. “The president’s symptoms are consistent with soft tissue inflammation related to acid reflux and will be treated accordingly,” Obama’s doctor, Captain Ronny Jackson, said in a statement.

 

Acid reflux is a condition in which the stomach contents flow back up from the stomach into the esophagus, causing such symptoms as heartburn and sore throat.

 

Obama went to Walter Reed military hospital for a fiber optic exam of his throat and since swelling was detected, doctors decided to perform a CT scan as well, Jackson said.

 

“The CT scan was conducted this afternoon purely as a matter of convenience for the President’s schedule. The CT scan was normal,” Jackson added.

 

Jackson said he recommended Obama go to Walter Reed for the tests after the president complained of suffering from a sore throat over the past couple of weeks.
