The allergy excuse makes Hillary look even more unfit

Despite the networks almost completely ignoring Hillary Clinton’s coughing fits and the Washington Post beseeching the media to not cover it, something is wrong with Clinton. Clinton is dismissing her physical ailment as pollen-induced “allergies.”

I’m not buying it. Here’s a list of allergy symptoms:

  • sneezing
  • wheezing
  • nasal congestion
  • coughing
  • itchy, watery eyes
  • runny nose
  • itchy throat
  • stomach ache
  • itchy skin
  • hives
  • fatigue
  • irritability

Have you seen any sneezing, red eyes or congestion? Me neither. Those are by far the most common symptoms of pollen allergy. Irritability is there, but I doubt it has anything to do with pollen. Her last coughing fit was on on September 5th, but allergens were very low that day. Clinton has been hacking all year, including January and February but pollen counts are generally low in the winter. A good timeline of Clinton hacking can be found here.

Clinton claims to be taking anti-histamines for her ailment. Someone needs to ask exactly what she’s taking as I sure would like to know. As a response to the latest coughing fits Clinton stated that she is upping her “antihistamine load.” Anti-histamines are drugs as with all drugs there are side effects, particularly if you are “upping the load.” Among them:

That might explain a lot.

For the moment let’s take Clinton at her word that she suffers from allergies. Given that her attacks occur year round it indicates a severe and chronic problem. That means she’ll require a continual “upped” load of anti-histamines (this is in addition to her well documented brain damage). Such a sustained dosage would reflect in the above symptoms appearing in Clinton. Older patients on anti-histamines are at risk for other side effects:

Older adults are especially sensitive to the central nervous system- and anticholinergic-related side effects of sedating antihistamines because of decreased cholinergic neurons or receptors in the brain, reduced hepatic and renal function, and increased blood-brain permeability. These patients also often have coexisting conditions and often take multiple medications that increase the risk of drug-drug interactions and the potential for sedative adverse effects.

Even when first-generation antihistamines are used at the lowest doses recommended by the manufacturer, they can cause serious central nervous system side effects, including dizziness, hypotension, and next-day sedation. These side effects can greatly increase the risk of falls and fall-related injury, with the impact of even one fall in an older adult potentially having tremendous negative consequences, including diminished quality of life and loss of independence.

Additionally, geriatric patients receiving elevated dosages of anti-histamines are prone to hallucinations and worse:

An estimated 25% of patients over the age of 65 have some existing cognitive decline, which may not always be obvious or recognized by others.5 However, when given highly anticholinergic medications, these patients may present with symptoms resembling those of dementia, which may lead to an inappropriate diagnosis of clinical dementia.

In a meta-analysis of 27 studies conducted between 1966 and 2008, in 25 of the studies researchers confirmed a link between anticholinergic medication use and either delirium, cognitive impairment, or dementia.6 Other studies reviewing the effects of diphenhydramine and its use in OTC analgesic plus diphenhydramine products have shown they can significantly increase the risk of delirium.

Because delirium and hallucinations can result from the use of anticholinergics including sedating antihistamines, patients receiving these medications are at risk of being prescribed antipsychotic medications. Cognitive decline, falls, and behaviors such as hallucinations, delirium, and agitated aggressive behaviors may result in affected patients being hospitalized or admitted to long term care facilities.

This would explain Clinton’s current dissociative behavior, i.e. her inability to tell the truth, her assertions that the FBI exonerated her, that she didn’t know what happened to her server, her inability to remember 40 times during the FBI interview, that she’s the most transparent candidate in history and more.

It would explain (along with her past brain damage) the dizziness she experiences

 

and the blurred vision which requires (IMO) a handler holding a flashlight to illuminate her path

 

 

Delusion, hallucinations, confusion, blurred vision, memory loss- this is not the desired stuff of a President. Nuclear codes? She wouldn’t remember where they were, presuming she didn’t sell them for a cash contribution. And that’s only if you believe her.

I don’t. She is not well.

 

 

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    @Greg:

    rather than to a taxing campaign schedule coupled with pneumonia

    wait a minute. She only travels about a third as much as Trump. 37 rallies compared to her 13. And her illness only happened Friday. Till then the Doctor said she was fine(and swears the moon is real cheese)

    @Bill, #49:

    Do Trump’s supporters know what his real positions are on anything? This is what makes the whole thing so sadly comical. They’re enthusiastically defending a sales pitch that’s devoid of any reliable details, while totally ignoring an assortment of warning signs so blatant that anyone should have noticed them by now. Then there’s his history:

Of course you didn’t of you would know what a fool you are when you type such crap!!

    you say that as if you have a clue what Hillary’s positions are on anything. Did anyone get killed in Libya or not? Are half of Trumps supporters ‘deplorables’?

    @Common Sense: @Redteam (One of The Proud Deplorables): And some fool gave Greg credit for being a good debater. He is only a parrot who continues to spout Clinton propaganda. He knows nothing about classified information and the requirements for guarding it, yet he writes paragraphs supporting the ignorance of Clinton. He knows nothing about medicine and health care, yet he writes paragraphs denying the symptoms Clinton shows. He has no scientific background, yet he supports the 97% of scientist support climate change as man made fraud. He never attended any advanced military schools yet he pretends to know tactical and strategic strategies. Common Sense, you described Greg as a hopeless fool. You are right on the money!

    @Greg: Yeah, I am pretty clear on what Trump’s positions are, though as a non-politician, what he will actually do remains to be seen.

    However, what is NOT questionable is Hillary’s record. She has been involved in every scandal she can access, enriching herself at every turn. She accomplished nothing as Senator then went on to accomplish even less (except for the damage she wrought) as Secretary of State. She ignored security warnings and got a consulate sacked along with causing the deaths of 4 Americans. Then, to try and cover her incompetence, she lied about it.

    She placed her own personal secrecy (putting the “secret” in Secretary) above OUR national security. She exposed classified information to our enemies and places innumerable lives in danger, no doubt causing more than a few to lose theirs.

    And she lies about all of that as well.

    Hillary is a known factor. She is corrupt, incompetent and a very bad liar. In addition, she appears to be in very poor health. There really is no choice here, Greg. It HAS to be Trump.

    Greg is a paid responder. Many of the effective Conservative blog sites have one or more of these interlopers. Their modus operandi is quite distinguishable. Greg is not a good debater, he is an average responder, nothing more….

    that’s very likely, but Greg has been around longer than most. We had a large barrage of them here earlier in the campaign, AJay is about the only one (except Greg) that is still here. He got renewed thru Nov 8, so if you want to say something to him, better say it before then. Most of them ‘blow in, blow hard, blow away. Remember Thor? John (the diesel truck driver)?
    I guess you’ve noticed the ‘right’ doesn’t use paid trolls.

    @Nanny G – A Proud Deplorable: I certainly agree that NBC is most liberal. At least, for a guideline, you can rely on NBC, as in: if they say it, it’s the liberal view. I can’t understand how someone can have a vocation of News reporting and work for someone or something so blatantly untruthful. Seems as if they would, at least accidentally, tell the truth occasionally. But No. While NBC is 100+, I can only give the NY Times a 99. But they’re trying.
