Nevada Senator and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid suffered a mini-stroke this week, but he's not expected to have any long-term effects from it. Doctors recommend that he uses the rest of the Senate recess to relax.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada suffered a minor stroke earlier this week but doctors found no complications, his office said on Friday.

"Senator Reid feels fine," his press secretary Tessa Hafen said in a statement.

Hafen said the Senate minority leader had undergone evaluations after he felt light-headed on Tuesday, and his wife urged him to seek medical attention.

"There are no complications or any restrictions on his activities," Hafen said. "His doctors have recommended that he take advantage of the summer congressional recess for some down time."

I don't agree with his politics, but I hope he ends up being ok...it looks like he will be but he should probably take it easy for a while and might need some medication.

Sounds like it was a very mild stroke, he should recover 100%. He seems to be a very physically active and fit person....but should take this as a warning sign to be carefully looked into. On the news, they were contrasting his stroke to the one Correta Scott King suffered.....hers was much more severe.
