Agency reports just coming in claim that the President is suffering from a severe condition called Meniere’s Disease and other health issues.
Meniere’s disease is caused by improper fluid drainage, im­mune disease, allergies, viral in­fection, genetic predisposition, or head trauma.
Experts said people suffering from the disease condition expe­rience the following symptoms: regular episodes of vertigo, which is when a person feels as if he/she or the objects around them are moving when they are not

“Often, it feels like a spinning or swaying movement. This may be associated with nausea, vom­iting, sweating, or difficulties in walking,” the experts said. 

Other symptoms would show incidences of falling down, as the individual might lose balance and fall as though he/she has epilepsy; hearing loss, which in Meniere’s disease, may come and go, par­ticularly early on. Eventually, most people have some perma­nent hearing loss.
There is also ringing in the ear (Tinnitus): Tinnitus is the percep­tion of a ringing, buzzing, roaring, whistling or hissing sound in your ear; feeling of fullness in the ear.
According to the experts, Meniere’s disease has no cure. The worse of this is the epileptic-like seizures that accompany the dis­ease.
“During an acute attack like this, patients are advised to lie down on a firm surface, stay as mo­tionless as possible, with eyes open and fixed on a stationary object.
“Patients are also advised not try to drink or sip water immedi­ately, as this might lead to vomit­ing,” they said.
