The Mayo Clinic has confirmed that it is treating Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. for bipolar disorder.
It’s the most detailed diagnosis yet of the congressman’s condition since he took a leave of absence back in June.
The clinic in Minnesota had previously revealed that Jackson was being treated for depression and gastro-intestinal issues.
Bipolar disorder is a condition in which the patient may alternate between periods of severe depression and a manic state characterized by euphoria and bursts of energy.
It’s still unclear when Jackson will be returning to his Capitol Hill duties.
