BANGKOK, July 13 (UPI) -- Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej was recovering from a small subdural brain hemorrhage and suspended his royal activities, the royal household said Friday.
The Committee of Royal Physicians said the monarch "experienced intermittent twitching of his right hand and his heartbeat was slightly increased" and sustained "minute subdural bleeding in the left frontal area," the Bangkok Post reported.
Medication alleviated the symptoms and the king's right hand, heartbeat and pressure returned to normal, doctors said.
The 66-year-old Bhumibol, Thailand's longest reigning monarch, had planned a visit to the Khao Cha-ngum Land Development Project in in Ratchaburi province Sunday.
