October 11, 2010 at 4:24 AM (PT)
GLENN BECK is off the air MONDAY and TUESDAY of this week (10/11-12), and he told his PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS listeners that he is taking off to deal with health issues. BECK said he had been experiencing numbness and tingling in his hands and feet and difficulties with his vocal chords and will undergo tests "out WEST."
"They're going to be doing CAT scans and MREs or MRIs and PET scans and they're going to be doing blood work like crazy," BECK said, adding, "I've seen five different doctors ... one of them said to me the other night, we have to do all of these blood tests because we have to look for toxins and poisons, and that word stuck out to me. And it's not poison like you know, it's like lead paint. And I'm like, no, I haven't been eating lead chips. And that word stuck out to me."
BECK has previously disclosed his vision problems, diagnosed as macular dystrophy.
