House Physician Affirms Bachmann's Health

In light of her migraine headaches, the attending physician for the House of Representatives has written a letter affirming Michele Bachmann's "good general health" that the campaign has sent to reporters. It notes the "extensive evaluation" by his own office and a consulting neurologist's, and also names the medications Bachmann has been prescribed for treatment: sumatriptan and odansetron. Lacking a medical degree, I don't have any light to shed beyond passing that along.
