GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Rep. Howard Coble is out of a Greensboro hospital after undergoing tests for dizziness.
A statement from Coble's office Wednesday said after a battery of tests, the 6th District Republican lawmaker was advised that all of his vital signs were good and that doctors could find no direct cause of the fainting spells.
Doctors at Moses Cone Hospital recommended that the 81-year-old representative wear a heart monitor to see if there is any connection to an irregular heartbeat and the light-headedness.
Coble said in the statement that he would make an attempt to eat healthier and better balanced meals in the future. But he also he won't be adjusting his work schedule in Washington.
If nothing changes, Coble plans to fly back to Washington next Monday.
