Limbaugh: Tests Show No Ailments After Chest Pain

Conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh says tests show nothing wrong after chest pains hospitalized him.

Limbaugh said Friday at a Honolulu news conference that he was being released from the hospital, where he'd been since Wednesday. Doctors said he did not have a heart attack or heart disease. Limbaugh says they don't know what caused the chest pains.

Asked whether he was taking painkillers, Limbaugh said no.

In 2003, he acknowledged an addition to pain killers for severe back pain and took a five-week leave from his radio show to enter rehab.

    "I believe the doctors. The whole thing was staged" ? The doctors didn't say it was staged. Read it again, or did you read it at all? Just because they don't find anything wrong doesn't mean a person doesn't have pain. Newsflash, it also doesn't mean that nothing is wrong. They make mistakes and miss things too.

    You keep saying bad things about Rush, Bush, FOX news in general but you cant speak up about our current administration. They have put us so far in debt that it will take decades to pay off, global warming, healthcare, terrorist attempts that they were warned about prior to it happening and the President took 4 days before he said anything to the public about it. As the leader of this Nation, he should have been heading back to D.C. that day, regardless of whether or not it was Christmas, he is the Commander in Chief, do you think the troops in Iraq and Afganistan had the day off? He was more worried about his golf game than he was National Security. I tell you that is some great leader we have.
