Hillary is in a dark place here. She cannot afford a coughing fit like she has been prone to, and she cannot afford to be doped enough to avoid one by any drug I know about. There is codeine of course which is a common cough suppressant, but it will leave her glassy eyed and unfocused. There may be some other anti-spasmodic I'm unaware of, but I think they mostly come with side effects that may have a negative impact on her performance as well.
The go to solution for the Democrats has always been to rely on a compliant and willing press to only show the narrative the Democrat candidate wants, but the rules prohibit that in this case.
So chess - what do you think? What drug(s) will they get her hopped up on and what are the side effects to watch out for? Is this a medical problem that has a solution with a minimum of cognitive side effects? Or is she just going to have to go red faced and choke back the fit when it comes? And how much fun would it be to pump her full of Ketamine by mistake and see how it goes?
If you can throw something in the comments, I'll yank it and post it up here with the question?

If she was honest about her health I could give you an idea. Besides boarded in anesthesiology I am also boarded in internal medicine.I know there was talk about a potential goiter and people said that was why she was wearing high neck collars etc. I would say that is more indicative of having a thyroidectomy. I would swear that she has a scar on her neck. A really good surgeon will find a crease in the skin of a woman's neck and then make the incision there so it can be somewhat hidden in the crease. So you wear turtlenecks for a few months until a lot of the redness is gone then you have a makeup specialists hide that scar when you are out in public.
All of this could explain the cough if one of her recurrent laryngeal nerves was injured during surgery.It is rare but can happen. It can paralyze one of her cords in any position. You can try to make it better with another surgery but she was in the midst of her primaries and I am sure didn't want to raise attention... She could have had a goiter that injured her nerves or a thyroid cancer that injured it. All the above sort of leaves her screwed.
A book a few years ago mentioned she might have a bad heart and/or valves. Some congestive heart failure from bad muscle or valve could cause severe coughing fits. In that instance the forward pump isnt working well and the blood backs up into your lungs and literally makes your lungs "soggy"which stretches a receptor and thus coughing fits. That kind of coughing would be even worse when she is laying flat at night or during day when she is really fatigued.
My money is thyroid nerve injury. Supposedly she uses desiccated thyroid which means her original physician must have been Socrates.She probably has to order that from some voodoo shop in Haiti or the Congo.
If she wins the election I think you will hear of some procedure being necessary either with some teflon injected into a chord or maybe a heart valve work. If its a a valve I think there would be an uproar.. In the real world if its heart her personal doc should be arrested. I think if she wins, anything after her hand on the bible oath is icing on the cake.
And finally ....Watch her and bottled water. See if she turns away from camera to take a drink and what might really be spitting secretions she cant swallow into the bottle. They can try to dry her out with a drug called atropine which leaves her mouth really dry but tolerable for a few hrs. Thats the path I would take. It doesn't affect mental function. Sorry. All this should be public knowledge. Tom . Besides all of this she has at least 3-4 other things that are good to have ie blood clots etc.Every time she flies puts her at risk even on coumadin ie rat poison. 5% of people per year will have a bad bleeding experience on coumadin,. Nasty drug.
The last thing I would also toss in is that witha injured vocal cord you cant move it. When we swallow something and some of it hits the cords they slam shut to protect your airway. Every now and then the cords will spasm for a few seconds which makes you a little nervous until they open up. If her cord is injured she cant protect her airway and so some food etc can get into your lungs and cause an ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA. Voila!!!
Her camp did a very good job of centering the focus on her pneumonia and not the potential cause. of that pneumonia.
