Glenn says he just went to the doctor because his hands and legs have been getting numb lately. He says it’s kinda like the eye thing, it could be bad or it may not be. Either way he sounds concerned:

@Skydaddy: or what happens to a sane person’s bowels when they hear Glenn Beck speak.
That sounds like TIA’s (mini-strokes) which can lead to a full stroke if he doesn’t get that checked.
Let me tell you something Glenn, WHATEVER YOU NEED, WHATEVER YOU NEED.
Dear Lord, please be with Glenn, his family and all of us, give him strength and grant him wellness, he serves you and rejoyces in you, as he brings us closer to you oh lord. As we all try to do better, in your name, AMEN.
cbs71,dito, I often think of Paul as he prayed “Lord please take this affliction from me”- My grace is sufficient, came the reply. However, Glenn’s been saying expect miracles. I can agree with that. The other day he said it was strange that he couldn’t see where he would be a year from now. In these times we can also say that about America. Lord we need you.
MS can cause loss of eyesight and neuropathy.
My thoughts exactly. Neil Cavuto has had MS for many years and appears to live life to the fullest. Positive thinking plus medical technology can do wonders.
Prayers for Glenn.
You could be correct.
# Vision problems . Vision problems are relatively common in people with MS. In fact, one vision problem, optic neuritis, occurs in 55% of people with the condition.This can result in blurring or graying of vision or blindness in one eye. However ,most vision problems in MS do not lead to blindness.
# Abnormal sensations. Many people with MS experience abnormal sensations such as “pins and needles,” numbness, itching, burning, stabbing, or tearing pains. Fortunately, most of these symptoms, while aggravating, are not life-threatening or debilitating and can be managed or treated.
I Pray he will be ok.
My Mom had MS, the symptoms are the same as he’s describing.
Williamm, you sound like a Dr. Have you heard of someone being misdiagnosed with MS who had lymes disease that was only detected after a second more expensive test 7 years later? These are just a few of the symptoms listed on the following site–
These include shooting pains, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, and problems with concentration and short term memory.
This happened to my friend. She is now on antibiotics and recovering.
Ni I’m not a Dr and don’t know the first thing about the medical profession. I just have a lot of info available on computer.
Thanks for the link.
grizzlybarrmomma, I also think it is most likely chronic lyme disease. I know the symptoms because my entire family is infected. It’s amazing doc’s can’t figure it out. It is really not that difficult to diagnose if you know the symptoms. Lyme is often misdiagnosed as MS or Lupus since the symptoms are so similar. But lyme is so much more common. AND he lives in CT – the worst place in the US for lyme!!!! Why not consider Lyme first?!
M- Is there something about a second test that is more expensive that gives a true positive or a true neg.?
It is Lyme Disease, I will put money it. I have similar symptoms and it took the doctors 3 years to figure out that it was lyme.
My guess is Lyme. Get it checked out by a Lyme Literate Dr. or you will run from Dr. to Dr. getting misdiagnosed. That is what my sister did. After 20 doctors and the Mayo clinic twice, she was ready to give up hope. A nurse suggested that it might be Lyme disease. She is now on her way to recovery thanks to her Lyme Literate doctor.
Cue leftist dancing in three, two ….
(c’mon, we all know what they will do)
Like you did when Ted Kennedy died.
Pretty much, yes.
ted killed a person in his lifetime.
I did not dance when he died. I actually felt quite sorry for him because I have a feeling I know where he is now.
Glenn is a national treasure. Hang in, dude, and keep up the good work. We’re with you.
Take care of yourself Glenn. We don’t want anything happening to you.Hope it’s nothing. keep us informed and I will be praying for you.
i PRAY THAT GLENN bECK WILL UNDERSTAND THAT THE SUGAR HE CONSUMES IS MAKING HIM SICK IN HIS EYES AND LEGS. iF HE WOULD FOLLOW A VEGAN DIET SUCH AS http://WWW.HACRES.COM HE WOULD GET WELL. WE HAVE EXPERIENCED WELLNESS FROM CANCERS AND SO MANY OTHER ILLNESSES FROM BEING A VEGAN AND GLENN BECK NEED TO EXERCISE!!!! HE IS NO GOOD TO ANYONE IF HE DOESN’T TAKE CARE OF HIS BODY. GOD CANNOT USE HIM IF HE ISN’T WELL IN HIS BODY!! We have been vegans through the Hallelujah lifestyle diet for 9.5 years. Husband is cured of milignant melanoma and non-hodgkins lymphoma after being given a very poor prognosis. http://www.hacres.com
Multiple sclerosis in all likelihood.
My prayers go out ot Glenn Beck and his family! Thank you GB for standing up for American and the America people!
I agree with Usa Jingoist, my wife has MS and has all those symptoms. The only way to know for sure is a spinal tap (ouch).
Have them run poisoning screening my friend.. you are enemy 1# to the people who have been planning a progressive take over of America…
My first thought. Or stress. I would not want to hear his voice messages or read his mail. God bless him.
It could also be nothing more than his muscles reacting to his work out regime he started not to long ago. The symptoms are very much like those experienced while the muscles heal after prolonged exercise. But still best to be on the safe side and let the Doctor run the tests to nail down the cause.
That is exactly what I thought too!! Plus stress can do crazy things to your body!!
Losing feeling in your hands or feet is a sign of diabetes. Check it out with your doctor. Diabetes affect everyone in different ways. Good Luck. We need you out here.
This doesn’t sound so much as tia’s ,but more likely, diabetic peripheral neuropathy, or periperaphy newropathy from spinal problems. or eve MS. A stroke will not usually affect both sides.
Has he bothered to have a glucose test lately? Adult onset diabetes can produce similar symptoms.
There are a number of nutritional deficiences AND excesses (e.g., excess Vitamin D) that also can produce such symptoms. Instead of telling the world about his problems, why doesn’t get them taken care of and button up?
What exactly is YOUR problem? He was telling his radio listeners that he had just gone to the doctor to find out what’s wrong. Why do you have a problem with that?
You sound like a liberal moron to me. Do you actually believe that he hasn’t already “bothered” to have a glucose test? I’ll bet he has ALREADY had a lot of various tests run to try to diagnose this – everything common would naturally be considered. Only an idiot would think that someone as intelligent as Glenn would mention it on the radio without first consulting with many, many doctors. My uncle has similar symptoms and has been living with them for years. He had a probable case of polio as a child and recovered. Then, many years later it reappeared as a peripheral neuropathy that has slowly crept up his legs. He walks with a cane and drives a car still. It is painful, but he has a good attitude.
I had the same problem a couple of years ago. It turned out to be a bulging disc in my neck pressing against my spinal cord. Fusing the neck discs solved the problem.
OMG all the doctors in here. Frankly, I think all signs point to leprosy.
Hope you’re OK Glenn.
could be GBS—
He’s been doing so much lately I won’t be surprised if it’s affecting his health.
Sounds like multiple sclerosis. Easy to diagnose with MRI. Great treatments out there, no worries.
No worries? Seriously? Do you have or know anybody with MS? I wake up each morning and each day with positive thoughts, surrounded by love from family and friends —- that said, there is no denying that my MS has been a terrible and life-long prison sentence.
My best to you. Hang in there! 🙂
Glenn, I have had similar maladies in my legs and feet. Turns out it can be ameliorated with high doses of b-12 injections.
Glenn, I’m praying for you to get well. May God bless you and your family.
Sounds like Wiggles Disease. I kid, but Greg (the Yellow Wiggle) had to retire due to a cardiac condition that caused numbness in his hands and feet. Since the show is all about moving and dancing he had to give it up.
GLENN! Ask your Dr. about Greg the Yellow Wiggle!
Glenn, keep up the good attitude. You mean so much to so many, especially your family. Keep the faith and the strength and what will be, will be my friend. 🙂
We love you.
I will bet it’s back and neck issues. It’s amazing how your spinal cord can affect so much of your body.
Glenn has complained about his back before. I hope you are right because physical therapy can help. Or it could be related to the recent working out with a physical trainer. I don’t want to think Glenn has MS, but whatever he has, if anything, we should pray for him and his family.
You may be right as well; I had back surgery years ago, and my whole right left went numb due to the disc pressing on the nerve. After the surgery I got the feeling back, but have residual numbness on my foot.
I do hope it’s only this and nothing major.
God Bless you Glenn.
MS causes vision problems due to swelling of the optical nerve. It also causes numbness in extremities.
Sounds like what Glen has.
Stress.. Stop drinking coffee and lay off the sweets, take a real vacation and stay away from the camera and don’t read or watch the news, take your family to a national Park and get away for a week.
I pray for him every day and will continue to do so. Could be all the stress he is under.
It sounds stress related – I’m not being cute.
With all the Tea Party stuff he’s involved in, maybe a vacation is what he needs.
He’s pushing it now. He’s crying wolfe and I’m not buying it. He should not jerk his audience around like this. There are many people who are living and dealing with REAL health issues everyday. Remeber the YouTube video he did after having anal surgery. Why did he do that? Why does he need his audience to be worried about it — it narcassistic. When Glenn goes blind (and I don’t want him to) then I’ll believe him
It’s not narcissism. Glenn has always been honest with his audience about what is going on in his life, less so since he has become a big target for the left. After the “butt surgery” video, he hardly mentioned his health until recently. I have a feeling he will regret mentioning this if he sees all this speculation about what is wrong.
Carkrueger – You’re a horse’s ass.
Ya that’s what Glenn does. Crys Wolf. What a jerk Carkrueger. You don’t have a clue what he goes through everyday trying to save YOUR sorry ass. Give the man a break. Quit being so judgemental of Glenn because I would bet that YOU are not even HALF the man Mr. Beck is. So lay off, say a prayer for him instead of being a horses butt. Narcissistic?????? That word belongs to your dear dictator in chief. HE is the true narcissist. Beck is FARRRRRRRRR from being anything like that.
IF doctors are able to rule out any underlying physiologic cause, Beck should read John Sarno. Sending prayers.
Sounds like MS.
Steriods should clear it up in the short term.
This sounds like glen could have contracted Guillain Barre.
Although GBS “can” come on slow, it usually comes on very quick. I know, I am recovering from an acute version of it. One of my doctors said there is also a “chronic” form that has a slower progression. The good new for GBS patients is that one can completely recover from it. God be with Glenn and his family…I will be praying for all of them.
I am very worried about him. Anyone who was at 8/28 probably is like me–he’s like family. God, please don’t let anything happen to him. He’s so good…
Sounds like Glenn needs to visit a chiropracter, or a doctor of natural medicine.
Probably something wrong with his neck, if he has tingling in his hands and legs, or perhaps lower back. I don’t go to medical doctors. They have no clue as to what they are doing 75% of the time. Been once in the last ten years, and threw away $600 dollars.
Stress….he needs more than a week off….I would miss him but he needs to take some time off, a month or so…it would be good for him…
A leave of abscence might help him regain his health or give him a break from the fast hectic life he leads!
To some this may seem far-fetched, but you all must realize that Glenn is very special and I believe, personally, he was given a mission.
It has been known that those who are “special” and “instructs” do tend to suffer – physically.
Please read up on visionaries and locutionists and the sufferings, which have been well documented.
Wish he would not say, “I am going blind” so much. Mind/soul over body and we get what we think about whether we want it or not. Ignore the symptoms? NO.
you are blessed
Stress can cause all kinds of things with the body…and Lord knows Glenn is under a LOT of THAT! Praying for him and his family each and every day. We need more Glenn Becks in this world!
Amen! The others need to stand up and help him with his burden!
try watching discovery health channel…or google the symptoms…try glenn! try!
Just a far-fetched thought – Do we know if he’s been tested for heavy-metal poisoning?? The “Medical Mystery” shows on cable have had several cases where arsenic or thallium have turned out to be the cause of a patient’s debilitating “mystery symptoms”; and we ALL know he’s got enemies in high places who want to shut him up…
So I’m paranoid. Doesn’t mean it’s not worth looking into.
You have just jumped to number one on my prayer list. You have to have a special place with God after all you have done for Him and us. We need you more than ever. Have faith, and if the prayers of those who love you have any power, then you will weather this storm.
I would bet a lot of $$$$$ it’s chronic Lyme disease. My entire family has it and I know the symptoms well. It can make you lose your eyesight in addition to the other symptoms he describes. Too bad our current medical system doesn’t recognize it as a serious disease. It’s very typical for people to remain undiagnosed for years, even going to the “best” MD’s. If only a good doc would suggest a trial of antibiotics to see what happens.
Megan, I wish you had replied to my comment earlier-I wouldn’t have had to sift thru to the end to find you—– I have a friend who was misdiagnosed with MS for 7 years—their Dr. even let them decide how to medicate themselves. They noticed that the symptoms fluctuated — sometimes extremely–even month to month and during the month (not like MS- a steady decline)—they recorded all these symptoms etc and finally found a Dr. who treated tons of people misdiagnosed with MS who have lymes disease. After a second more expensive test recently they received antibiotics and are finally recovering. These are just a few of the symptoms listed on the following site I found–
These include shooting pains, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, and problems with concentration and short term memory.
Thanks for finding me above. 🙂
Did Glenn get either the seasonal or H1N1 vaccine last year? Guillan Barre Syndrome can present like this, and neuropathies such as this are one of the major reportable adverse effects.
Sounds like it could be a mercury issue… just sayin’…
He lives in Connecticut. Sounds like Neuro Lyme to me. I hope he doesn’t stay with big shot main stream Doctors for too long and gets his butt to a LLMD for Dx.
Put him on a course of Doxycycline and see what happens. He may need IV antibiotics. Bet its faory new infection and it has hit his CNS. Sure wound exactly like what my granddaughter has been experiencing for the last two months. Started Doxycycline five days ago and already her balance is improving. Oh by the wya the ELISA came up negative. Not surprised though. These tests are missing lots of cases. It has to be a clincical Dx and anti biotics started. Hope he doesn’t get DX with MS and pumped full of steroids that supress the immune system. He is already commenting on neuro toxin which makes me believe he is on to something. Lyme and its co-infections are neruro toxins. I’ll bet my bottom dollar its Lyme. Didn’t he just have appendicitis. Lyme can also attack organs. its the great mimicker.
