Ross says he got home from a trip to Vegas Thursday night and wasn’t feeling well, so his wife forced him to go to a nearby hospital in Oklahoma to get checked out. Doctors ran a battery of tests on the 62-year-old and ultimately determined the symptoms were being caused by meds he had been taking for an unrelated medical issue.
Doctors also informed Ross the tests showed he had suffered a minor undiagnosed stroke in the past. Ross’ doctors are confident they fixed the problem — changed his medication — and the podcast-host was released from the hospital Saturday evening.
