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."
I do not believe this for a minute. She needed some attention, that's all. Hand shakes? You're Right.
Sad news. I hope she is better.
No doubt this condition was exacerbated by the need to prop up her husband on many an occasion or act as his ventriloquist when his lyin' lips can be moved by a modicum of truth.
here come the oxy-contin jokes!
This is DEVASTATING!! I sincerly hope she pulls through. :-\
She probably went to the hospital to get some disinfectant to rub off the stench of the common man.
A hand sprain? And this is BREAKING NEWS? I type all day and have various pains – so what? Everyone at CNN, please join Obama in Hawaii for a much needed vacation! This is too much!
i'm sorry for you hand
Are you kidding me? She is a feebile as her husband!!!!!!!!!!
It must be nice to be abel to go to an Emergency Room (didn't even have to settle for an Urgent Care) because someone shook her hand too hard. Can you spell E-L-I-T-I-S-T?!?!?!
Good lord. Can you say D-R-A-M-A?? She needs more pain pills probably.
she shoulda gone for the 'ol fist bump.
She Must Have Ran Out Of Pain Medication!
how is this news?
make sure she gets a a nice big perscripton to pain killers
Well Senators have great insurance plus the McCains are filthy rich so she'll get top notch medical care. That's what America is all about.
omg. a sprain? to hospital? guess that's what happens when you're a 'barbie doll' lookalike. she's just way tooo plastic for me.
Poor little Cindy, I guess she qualifies for disability now.
