Barack Obama likes to think of himself as an immortal God, but he recently learned the hard way that he is human just like the rest of us.
According to American News, Obama was recently rushed to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland, where doctors diagnosed him with acid reflux. This came after the president underwent a CT scan for a chronic sore throat.
Obama was then given a fiber optic exam by an ear, nose and throat specialist from Fort Belvoir Medical Center under the supervision of Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, his own physician.
Jackson said the exam revealed “soft tissue swelling” and that “further evaluation with a routine CT scan was prudent.”
“The president’s symptoms are consistent with soft tissue inflammation related to acid reflux and will be treated accordingly,” Jackson told reporters.
Ironically, one of the causes of acid reflux is a poor diet, meaning Barack could be in trouble with his health-crazy wife. He will reportedly have to avoid certain foods and take heart medication for the time being.
