Thai King suffers brain bleeding

Thailand`s 84-year-old King has suffered brain bleeding, forcing him to cancel a planned trip to a nearby province.



Bangkok: Thailand`s 84-year-old King has suffered brain bleeding, forcing him to cancel a planned trip to a nearby province, the Royal Palace announced on Friday.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej had "experienced intermittent twitching of his right hand and his heart beat was slightly increased last night.

“An X-ray computerised tomography of his brain revealed that there was minute subdural bleeding in the left frontal area. After medication was given intravenously last night the seizure disappeared," a statement said.

It said that doctors urged him not to take on any duties for a while.

Doctors said that after the medication the King`s right hand movement, heart beat and pressure were normal.

The King had been scheduled to visit a development project on Sunday in the western province of Ratchaburi.

The King was admitted to the hospital in September 2009 after suffering respiratory problems.
