"It has baffled some of the best doctors in the world. It has frightened me and my family, as we didn't know what was happening," Glenn, 50, explained on a Nov. 10 appearance on his television network, 'TheBlaze.'
"We didn't know at the time what was causing me to feel as though, out of nowhere, my hands and feet, or arms and legs would feel like someone had just crushed them, set them on fire or pushed broken glass into them," he added.

The neurological condition once became so severe, he said, that Glenn was forced to establish a signal with the producers at his self-titled 'Fox News' television program to take the camera off of him when the pain he was experiencing became too extreme.
He even once began looking for his replacement on the show after he was told his condition could worsen after five or ten years.
Thankfully, the star and his wife, Tania Colonna, found treatment for the rare illness at Carrick Brain Centers in Texas.

"We went and after a few short visits they found that I had several things going on — from an autoimmune disorder to adrenal fatigue, and they found the connection on everything that was going on," he said.
"Me never having to sleep was finally understandable. The last sign of adrenal failure is a hyperextension of your adrenal glands. In other words, I didn't need sleep. I could have been lifting cars during my time at Fox!"
