Former presidential hopeful Rick Perry’s office confirmed that the Texas governor was diagnosed with “mild sleep apnea” during his presidential run.

“Gov. Perry was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea during the campaign and was treated with a breathing machine for a few weeks,” Perry’s office told CNN, according to The Texas Tribune.

“Once the governor's back recovered sufficiently to return to his regular exercise routine, the apnea issue was resolved and no further treatment was necessary," the statement said.

While Perry confirmed that he used the machine for about a month he insisted that he doesn’t suffer from sleep apnea and it “probably wasn’t a good diagnosis,” reports The Houston Chronicle.

Perry briefly held the status of front-runner in this year’s GOP primary race before suspending his campaign.

One of the longest-serving governors in U.S. history, Perry recently said that he is likely to seek re-election in 2014 and is even open to another try for the White House in 2016.
