Limbaugh, 58, was released from The Queen’s Medical Center two days after he was rushed there during a vacation. Doctors said he did not have a heart attack or heart disease.
“The pain was real, and they don’t know what caused it,” Limbaugh said, adding his best guess was he had a spasm in an artery.Limbaugh said he was not taking painkillers.
