WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross addresses his health following hospital stay
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross blogged on his medical issues and his hospital stay. "It's been an interesting past few days," Ross started. "After returning home from a great experience at the annual caulifloweralleyclub.org function in Las Vegas I had another issue of disorientation on Thursday upon landing in OKC and my wife insisted on taking me to the emergency room in Norman.
"I was treated for stroke-like symptoms for two days in the hospital in their stroke care unit. I don't remember Tuesday morning whatsoever including driving myself to the OKC airport, my wife as in Vegas already as I had to stay behind and record a podcast, nor do I recall boarding the plane in OKC for Vegas.
"I presented Terry Taylor with a much deserved Iron Mike award at the CAC and have no memory of what I said. That's scary. About a month ago I took a fall in our home that had me hitting my head on our wood floor but I no sold it and never mentioned it to my wife. I assumed that the loss of memory and lost days were a result of that.
"After enduring multiple MRI's and numerous tests on my brain and heart it was determined that my prolonged use of Ambien as a sleep aid to combat my insomnia was the primary culprit of my issues. Ambien is a 'temporary' solution to insomnia but I have been taking it for years. Not good. The side affects of Ambien are scary, read about them, of which now I know. If you are taking it, I strongly suggest that you consult your physician." Read the full blog at JRsbarbq.com.
