Aung San Suu Kyi's doctor says she is worried the Nobel laureate's tour of Europe could take its toll on her health, after she fell ill at a news conference.

Pyone Moe Ei said on Friday in Rangoon that her "lack of rest and her extremely tight schedule are very worrisome".

The 66-year-old opposition leader was sick at a news conference in Berne, Switzerland, on Thursday, shortly after complaining that she was exhausted from her trip the day before.

However, a member of her delegation said she was feeling better and will keep up her European tour schedule.

She had similar episodes during a campaign for parliament earlier this year.
