The doctors told him he had a medical condition called small fiber neuropathy, which damages nerves near the skin and can result in occasional, but intense, flashes of pain. Beck said they were unsure about what was causing the condition, but told him that things could have been much worse.
They also determined that half of his vocal cords have gone into paralysis--though they thought this was due to a virus, and not to what they had feared was major nerve damage.
Beck also joked about the flurry of medical tests he had to undergo -- with needles, MRIs, PET scans and x-rays all being administered.

2. Um, he forgot to mention one major cause of small fiber neuropathy:
3. The virus was smeared on his cup by a Democrat operative. Or maybe there's a God after all.
