Agriculture commissioner Goehring hospitalized

BISMARCK - North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has been hospitalized at Medcenter One, Bismarck, and is undergoing a series of tests, according to a press release.

The commissioner is experiencing fatigue and an unusual sensation in his hands and feet. He is resting well and has hopes of an early diagnosis. As of today, the tests have not been conclusive, according to the release.

Goehring has some concern that his symptoms may be a reoccurrence of Guillain-Barré syndrome (French Polio), a condition he was diagnosed as having about 18 years ago.

Goehring continues to conduct agriculture department business from the hospital.
