Watch the McCains discuss the injury at a press conference Wednesday.
(CNN) - Cindy McCain visited a Michigan hospital after a campaign event Wednesday, complaining of pain in her hand.
"At some point during the rope line an enthusiastic supporter shook Mrs. McCain’s hand and exacerbated an existing carpal tunnel condition,” said spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker. “Out of an abundance of caution, she decided to leave the event and visit the local hospital for x-rays where she was treated for a minor sprain."
UPDATE: The campaign reports that Cindy McCain will return to active campaigning on Thursday.
Cindy McCain, who has a brace on her right arm, told reporters she was "fine." Her husband said Wednesday afternoon that someone shook her hand "too vigorously."
Probably got a cramp from counting her money.
A hospital for carpal tunnel? Give me a break. What a primadonna. I am voting for McCain anyway of Obama does not pick Clinton as his VP.
A handshake sent her to the hospital? And she's the YOUNGER McCain!!
I hope she's feeling better soon.
...wow. seems like a bit much, but whatever. hope she's fine.
I hate hearing that anyone gets physically hurt on a campaign... but... this woman is pretty fragile to go to the hospital after a handshake.
I wonder if it was Carol.
Seriously, I hope Cindy well.
I hope First Lady McCain is OK!! I am just glad that we will have her as First Lady instead of Michelle "I am ashamed to be an American" Nobama!
It's a shame that with all of the terrible news from overseas about Georgia, the media chooses to print a story about Cindy McCains hand getting hurt! It's hardly time to call 911 about a slight hand injury. I'm sure that if it had been Michelle Obama getting slightly injured, not much would have been written about it. The media really needs to get a handle on what's important and what's not. It's like they're trying to match the coverage on McCain with what they did on Obama. Who's the celebrity now........huh!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am not a fan of the McCain's by any measure of the imaginaiton; but, as a suffer of a carpal tunner condition, I wish Mrs. McCain relief from her pain. She likes ot look elegant all of the time. It is not worth the pain. She needs to wear a wrist splint especially when shaking hands.
I often see females at grocery stores who are in the process of developing carpal tunnel conditins. I advise them to wear wrist splints to protect themselves. Repetitive motion in the wrist area can result in pain beyond belief including migraine headaches.
Mccain will probably dump her now.
He cheated on his first wife when she got injured.
"Ouch, my hand hurts. I need pain pills, lots and lots of pain pills"
Hopefully they pain isn't too high to where they'd be forced to prescribe pain medicine again. Would hate to see her get addicted again.
This is "Breaking News" from CNN?????
You people print such copious amounts of non-news it is pathetic.
Cindy, watch the pain medication this time.
Next thing we will hear about is that she had too much botox and her face cracked...
I never knew a person could be so fragile! I can see the jokes on late night already! LOL!!!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHa That has made my day. Poor little thing hurt her little hand. HAHAHAHA Just what Detroit needs. Another headline grabbing druggie who hurt her little hand. Hope she has good insurance.
I WENT TO THE BATHROOM A FEW MINUTES AGO......IS THAT CONSIDERED NEWS-WORTHY?
Carpal tunnel is no laughing matter guys. Weither you like Cindy or not, give her a break when writing your comments.
On the other hand, this could be a good segway into the healthcare issue.
Yeah, and maybe swipe some pill bottles while you're there.
They might not want to give her pain pills with her past and all.
A SPRAINED HAND IS NEWS. PEOPLE ARE DYING IN GEORGIA AND THIS IS SOMEHOW NEWS.
SHE JUST NEEDS A LITTLE BIT OG DRUGS. SHE WILL BE FINE.
The wives should be more careful.
Their husbands can manage the handshakes. We have some powerful supporters on both sides who will not be thinking how they are strongly shaking the women hands.
Why would she even have carpal tunnel damage , she has never worked a day in her life?
Oh yea I forgot....When you ring the bell for a servant that is a repeative motion.......My bad.
Cindy McPain to the doctors: "Hey, how about some pain killers? Maybe about 500 pills or so..."
I AM SORRY, BUT I DO NOT HAVE ANY SYMPATHY FOR THE McCAIN'S. THEIR STORY IS THE SAME AS THE JOHN EDWARDS STORY. McCAIN COULD NOT BE BOTHERED WITH A SICK WIFE AND STARTED CAROUSING WITH CINDY – WHO I THINK IS SCARY. I HOPE AND PRAY THAT PAIR NEVER REACH THE WHITE HOUSE WITH THEIR LOW MORALITY, ETC. GOD HELP OUR COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
