Ellen DeGeneres 'fine' after chest pain worries

Tuesday September 27, 2011

Ellen DeGeneres has said she's fine after feeling chest pains that prompted paramedics to respond to the Burbank studio where her daytime talk show is taped.

The comedienne said she doesn't know what caused the pain "but it's fine".

Ellen woke up feeling tightness and heaviness in her chest on Sunday night.

She compared the sensation to having two cats on her chest.

The pains lingered when she came to work, so she called 911 "to be safe".

Joking that the paramedics may have overreacted, she said a number of trucks and ambulances showed up on the Warner Brothers lot and appeared "like one marching band short of a parade".

She thanked the medical team "for caring so much".
