Limbaugh felt pains similar to heart attack

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh remains hospitalized in Hawaii after experiencing chest pains similar to a heart attack.

That's according to Walter E. Williams, Limbaugh's guest host Thursday on his nationally syndicated radio show.

Limbaugh was rushed for medical treatment Wednesday to a Honolulu hospital while vacationing in Hawaii.

Williams says doctors haven't confirmed whether Limbaugh was having a heart attack and more tests are planned for Thursday.

He says Limbaugh remains in "good, stable condition."

Kit Carson, Limbaugh's chief of staff, tells The Associated Press the 58-year-old left for his Christmas vacation on Dec. 23 and was due to return to his show Jan. 4. Limbaugh broadcasts from his mansion in Palm Beach, Fla.
