What did German doctors say about Merkel's trembling?
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was relieved after a day of intense tremors when she met new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zellinski in Berlin.
"It's a wonderful experience," Merkel said on Wednesday during a visit to the German city of Goslar in response to a reporter's question about her condition.
Merkel, accompanied by her deputy and former Foreign Minister Ziegmar Gabriel and his daughter Mary, met the mining museum "Ramsberg". Merkel and Gabriel are due to meet about 200 students at a panel discussion at the historic Kaiserfüllts Palace in the city.
Earlier this morning, Merkel led the cabinet session. According to statements by participants, the tremor was not addressed either during the preliminary talks by Merkel's Christian coalition, during the cabinet meeting, or even on the sidelines of the meeting.
While standing in front of the guard of honor next to the Ukrainian president, Merkel seemed to be shivering in her legs and body, but when she walked with Zilinski in front of the guard of honor, the tremor became apparent.
Merkel said at a news conference with Zielinski yesterday that she was currently dealing with three glasses of water, explaining that the reason for the tremor was apparently the lack of water in her body, adding that she is in good shape now as it is clear.
Doctors at the University of Hamburg-Eppendorf University Hospital Alexander Schulze said that the reason for Merkel's " Lack of fluid in her body is not strange.
He added that the tremor in itself is not a matter of concern from the medical perspective, explaining that the lack of fluids in this weather is normal.
The information that the chancellor improved her condition after taking three glasses of water could undoubtedly be a sign that she had suffered from a short-term problem in circulation, Schulste said.
"Of course, I was surprised, but rather because of the firmness that Merkel has shown (despite the shudder)," said Jakob Berger, the general physician and head of the Bavarian doctors' union, Jakob Berger. .
