Judge Judy Sheindlin was taken to a hospital with what her rep called "intestinal discomfort" after a 911 call Wednesday morning from the studio where she tapes her show.

Los Angeles firefighters told TheWrap that they responded to a 911 call from KTLA Studios at 9:12 a.m. Sheindlin's rep, Gary Rosen, told Radar Online that Sheindlin was "feeling nauseous and had some intestinal discomfort and decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out."

He said the judge, 68, was being held overnight for tests.

A source inside the studio told Radar that cameras were rolling on a taping of the show when Sheindlin "started saying things that didn't make any sense." The source said she "said couple of sentences that didn't have anything to do with the case and then she stopped speaking and said she wasn't feeling well."

Sheindlin, who retired as a judge in 1996, continues to earn high ratings for the syndicated show "Judge Judy."
