Mystery Illness Forces Paul Rodriguez into ICU

10/2/2009 3:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paul RodriguezDoctors haven't figured out exactly what's wrong with comedian Paul Rodriguez -- who's in ICU right now with severe abdominal pains.

Mario Santoya
-- who works with Paul at the California Latino Water Coalition -- tells us Paul is in stable condition at George Washington University Hospital in D.C., but has been forced to take pain medication while doctors try and pinpoint the cause of his illness.

Mario says multiple tests and x-rays have been performed on Paul since he was rushed to the hospital yesterday -- but to no avail.

As we first reported, Mario found Paul -- who had been throwing up the night before -- immobilized by pain in his hotel room yesterday and was forced to call an ambulance.

I get him confused with that other non-funny latino, George Lopez. A water coalition for latinos? They wouldn't need one if they would A: quit having so many bambinos and B: encourage their relatives to stay put South of the border.

I agree with #9..WHERE IS HOUSE WHEN YOU NEED HIM! Oh, yeah-he hasn't been rehired back after he quit because he thought that he would go back to using vicodin again but then realized that he might start using again if he doesn't return back to work and thus has to work to stay sober...and now wants his old job back...so YEAH-where is HOUSE?

Obama administration smoked him with a nasty bug because he spoke out against Obama on Fox news awhile ago. Guess the current administration is screwing about 80000 people and Fruit growers in S. California because of water rights.

If you can't afford healthcare, get a job!
If you have a job, and can't afford healthcare, GET A SECOND JOB!
If you have a second job, and can't afford healthcare, STOP HAVING KIDS!

Doctors are like lawyers and they all have a different opinion!

I was misdiagonsed with Acid Reflux Disease but turned out to be an Inflamed Gallbladder that ruptured.

It was the most severe abdominal I had ever experienced. It was like a bomb exploded in my stomach and left me immobilized.

Hey, liberals are loosers- first, it's spelled "losers", not loosers. Seriously, if you're gonna throw out the insults, at least spell them correctly. Second, are you suggesting that you don't pay your homeowner taxes? I suggest you take a look at the statement. You're already paying for the healthcare of others. It's that line that reads "county hospital tax". But honestly, until you learn how to spell and (more importantly) what the HELL you're talking about, I think faux news might be a better fit for your rants, because at this site, you're just making yourself look stupid.
