Glenn Beck Reveals He’s Suffering From Neurological Illness That ‘Made Me Look Crazy’
Glenn Beck on Monday revealed in a lengthy post on The Blaze that he has been suffering from health issues that he said, “quite honestly has made me look crazy.”
Beck said he was told he may only have several functional years left, and his health conditions were causing such pain that doing live programming was becoming difficult.

No one in the media ever does a show like this, because it is crazy. … But I believe that by not talking with you openly, it destroys everything of real meaning and value — namely, our trust.”
“I have never lied to you, but I have omitted a few really important facts because — they scared me,” Beck said. “I didn’t have any answers, and the answers I was being given at the time meant … the end of our time together.”
According to The Blaze, it was around the time of his Restoring Honor event in Washington, D.C., that God started telling him that he was standing in the wrong place. At that time he began to suffer from vocal cord paralysis, eyesight problems and what doctors initially thought was neuropathy. .
“While I was at Fox, the pain would get so bad that my camera crew, our executive producer Tiffany and I, had worked out hand signals so they would know when to take the camera off of me,” Beck said. “We didn’t know at the time what was causing me to feel as though, out of nowhere, my hands and feet, or arms and legs would feel like someone had just crushed them, set them on fire or pushed broken glass into them.”
After suffering from convulsions, Beck was tested for traumatic brain injury and he said they discovered that that he was functioning in the bottom tenth percentile.
“I was told at the time that I had anywhere between five and ten years before I would no longer be able to function,” Beck said. “I was told to go home, take at least a year off, and enjoy the days with my children.”
“Over the last ten months, I did all kinds of tests and therapies, which included everything from electric stimulation to weird gyroscope tests like the astronauts use where they’re flipping you around,” Beck remarked. “After months of treatment and completely changing the way I eat, sleep, work and live, along with ongoing hormone treatment and intensive physical therapy, I have reversed the process. Some of the physical scars will be with me for the rest of my life … but my brain is back online in a big way.”
According to Beck, tests now show him in the 90th percentile and he’s received a clean bill of health.
“Rush Limbaugh says he does the show with half his brain tied behind his back,” Beck said. “With me, it’s actually been true. But now, it’s back online.”
