Glenn Beck revealed to his fans Wednesday that he’s suffering from a medical condition called small fiber neuropathy, which damages nerves near the skin and can result in intense flashes of pain. But Beck stressed that "I'm not dying," though he said the doctors had uncovered several troubling medical issues, according to the Huffington Post.
His doctors also told Beck that half of his vocal cords have gone into paralysis--though they thought this was due to a virus, and not to what they had feared was major nerve damage.
Beck also joked about the flurry of medical tests he had to undergo -- with needles, MRIs, PET scans and x-rays all being administered.
One doctor, he said, told him that he would be receiving "only about as much radiation as people received at Nagasaki."
