His Majesty treated for rapid heartbeat, leaking blood vessels in brain

His Majesty the King has been treated for rapid heartbeat and a minor case of leaking blood vessels in the brain, the Royal Household Bureau announced Friday.



The bureau announced that His Majesty had a shaking right hand Thursday evening and an irregular heartbeat. His team of doctors performed a computer x-ray scan on His Majesty's brain and found that a small amount of blood had seeped out under the outer layer of the left side of the brain.

Doctors provided intravenous treatment and the shaking stopped.

The team of doctors reported that His Majesty's right hand was able to move normally Friday morning and that his heartbeat and blood pressure had returned to normal.

The team of physicians has recommended that His Majesty cancel all activities for a while.

Agriculture Minister Teera Wongsamut said he had been informed by Deputy Lord Chamberlain Dissathorn Watcharothai that His Majesty had indefinitely postponed the trip to the Khao Cha-ngum royally initiated project in Ratchaburi.
