HELP ME, IM DYING! Bent over in agony, JOHN EDWARDS cried out for assistance during a terrifying heart attack drama only days after the one-year anniversary of his wife ELIZABETHs death.
Thats the shocking untold story behind the disgraced politicians sudden request to postpone his upcoming criminal trial, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.
John fell apart in front of a pal after returning from a jog and was afraid hed die, revealed a close source.
His heart began pounding and he was having labored breathing. He had many symptoms of a major heart attack, so he asked his friend to rush him to his doctor.
In documents filed Dec. 22 in a North Carolina federal court and obtained by The ENQUIRER, lawyers claimed the former presidential candidate had unexpectedly encountered a medical issue that will make it extraordinarily difficult for him to appear in court for his trial, slated to begin Jan. 30.
While the details of his medical situation were filed under seal and cannot be reported to the public, a close friend revealed that Edwards was telling pals he was suffering from sleep apnea and migraine headaches.
BUT while sources confirm he does have the potentially deadly sleeping disorder, the sudden chest pains and shortness of breath are what spurred a frightened Edwards who claims a family history of heart disease to request the delay, say sources.
John has been very depressed with theupcoming trial and particularly down in the dumps with the holiday season and his young children having to deal with the first anniversary of his wifes death on Dec. 7, said the close source.
Under tremendous stress from the impending trial on charges he misused campaign funds to cover up an illicit affair and love child, Edwards had also been drinking too much, said the close source.
It all came to a head when he recently went for a short jog near his palatial North Carolina estate and collapsed with chest pains, divulged the insider.
AFIGASO...as if I give a smelly Obama.
Mitt Romney immediately called to express concern about his hair.
Hopefully the Judge will see through this sham and order him to appear to be tried right on schedule.
Sounds like a panic attack. And he has reasons to panic.

Aint that thar one of them dangling participles? Dangling participles have been outlawed here. If they see them flappin’ around under your truck, they pull you over.
Did someone say drama?
Not to ruin the drama, but Breck Boy has probably just inhaled a few too many fumes from his daily coif.
Isn’t the “palatial North Carolina estate” enough to keep you happy Johnny? Lord knows you earned it!~sarc
Lover boy knows what fate awaits him in the slam. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
Good Lord, I hate people like Edwards with a white hot passion, and I don’t mind saying so.
that photo looks like it’s from The Brady Bunch.
You beat me to it with Fred Sanford.
My three year old son, who has never seen the show, does the reeling and plopping on the floor thing often when he receives a verbal lashing.
What a shameless Huckster.
Did you know that his Daddy worked in a “meel”?
