(WTVR) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be spending the next couple of days at home after sustaining a concussion.

The State Department says Clinton became dehydrated while battling a stomach virus she caught during a trip to Europe.  She hit her head when she fainted.  According to the New York Times, she was alone at her home in Washington at the time.  They say her concussion was not severe.

Her doctors advise that she should spend next week working from home.

As a result, Clinton will not testify on Thursday before the Senate and House Foreign Affairs Committee about September’s deadly attack in Benghazi.
