Aides to the U.S. Senate's top Democrat Harry Reid say he went to the doctor this week after feeling light-headed and learned he had suffered a mild stroke.
A statement issued by Senator Reid's press secretary Friday said he feels fine and that there are no complications or any restrictions on his activities. The statement said Mr. Reid's doctors have recommended that the 65-year-old lawmaker take advantage of the summer congressional recess to get some relaxation.
Congress has been in recess since the beginning of August.
Harry Reid is minority leader in the Republican-controlled Senate. His office said he sought medical attention at the urging of his wife.
