Dayton, 69, collapsed while delivering a state of the state address in front of a joint session of the state’s legislature on Monday night.
Dayton regained consciousness and got up by himself just a few minutes later, but promptly left the state capitol according to a statement released by his office.
Dayton said he received the diagnosis on Friday, and that he would undergo further testing after collapsing on Monday.
Dayton also collapsed during a speaking event last year, after feeling an “increased pressure in his lower back.” He was briefly hospitalized and released the following day.
