Glenn Beck said today that he suffers from a severe neurological disease that doctors are unable to diagnose, Mediabistro reports. Appearing on TheBlaze, the conservative pundit says doctors have given him five to 10 years before he's unable to function. He also divulged seizures dating back to his time on Fox, where he says crew members would take the camera off him when his pain was debilitating. "My hands, feet, arms, and legs feel like someone had just crushed them, or pushed broken glass into my feet," Beck says during a tearful interview. "The doctors tell me I haven't had REM sleep in as much as a decade." Beck says his health was one reason he moved to Dallas' warmer climate: "My doctors thought if I stayed in New York City, I wouldn't be alive today," he adds. (More Glenn Beck stories.)
