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 HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER, ITS FUN HAVING YOU ON THOSE TOUR
Injured while shaking hands? Really?
Carpel Tunnel? Ii thought you got that when you worked for a living in say.. An Office!
Are you serious!? People out there working hard everyday getting actually getting hurt on the job but can't afford to go to the hospital and we're reading about a rich person spraining their wrist. Come on people lets not fignt each other anymore. 2008's election is not about democratic vs republican vs conservative vs liberal vs educated vs non educated its about the a small group of people riding the gravey train while the rest of America suffers. It does not matter what party, gender, or demographic you belong to please read about the issues and candidates policies and tell yourselve which one is going to help (you have to help yourselve also) my family. I am a huge Obama supporter and I read alot of post with a lot hateful posts from Hilliary supporters and McCain Supporters but also from Obama supporters also. This is for the people supporting Barack your not going to make people change their mind and calling them names only helps strengthen their hatred, so lets follow Barack's lead let the haters hate and we hit them with truth and facts. Hate begits hate and if we go into the white house with Barack as our president and we are jaded and angry people how will WE make change!?
Hope they didn't give her any pain pills
Yea right, she got tired of fraternizing with the common folk.
Did she OD again?
She must be losing her bearings too.
Are you kidding me? This is NOT NEWS!!! Carpel tunnel syndrome? OMG!
I'm sure there will be SELECTIVE hand shaking after this. Glad she's ok though. OBAMA for 08.
I suppose it is time for some pain meds.... now where would Cindy McCain get some of those...?
now...really....what makes this news ??!
oh yeah : cindy McCain can afford health care for minor pain while you and i just DONT even if we were about to die !
Elite? Handshake lands Cindy in ER.
I hope she is OK.
But my goodness...are the McCain's THAT old? They can't even shake hands without getting hurt?
Poor Poopey. What a waste of a doctor's time. I guess someone who was really injured and suffering had to wait so that poor Barbie's granny could get some drugs.
No problem. Pain killers will do the trick. She'll even be able to get her own prescription this time.
Nothing but the best treatment a beer heiress's money can buy.
She should not have gone on campain trail.Tell Macsame to let her
do her domestic work at home.
she should go and sleep ,since she dont know anything about politices,
its not easy being old.
Barbie's fragile... Who knew???
Cindy's merely using this as an excuse to keep from having to touch the 'common folk' on the trail...
The hospital for a sprain? Hmmmm sounds like the pill popper is at it again.
