Doctors say that it’s not uncommon for stress, fatigue or sleep deprivation to cause seizure-like symptoms. Drugs and alcohol also can cause seizures. A single seizure usually causes no lasting damage.

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who canceled an overseas trip this week due to a stomach virus, suffered a concussion after she fainted, the State Department said Saturday.

“She will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon,” the statement said.
No other information was provided and a spokesman for the department declined to comment.

Charlie Beljan woke up Sunday with a pounding headache and stomach discomfort.
Here we go again.
“Here I am with the lead on the PGA Tour,” Beljan told himself, “and I can’t even wake up and lay in bed and feel well.”
One day earlier, you’ll recall, Beljan did his snoozing in a hospital bed after a panic attack left him fighting to take a normal breath. He ought to be able to rest easy now, though – he’s a PGA Tour winner.
In Disney parlance, call it Charlie Beljan’s Wild Ride.
“This is the greatest feeling ever,” the Arizona pro said after winning the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic. Sunday’s 3-under-par 69 gave him a two-shot triumph over Robert Garrigus and Matt Every.
Hey, even Disney might not even have bought this script. Beljan’s pulmonary distress, which found him frequently sitting on his bag or even lying on the ground, came between shots of a 64 that gave him a three-shot lead after two rounds.
