LOS ANGELES - Judge Judy got served a clean bill of health Wednesday afternoon after paramedics rushed her to the hospital in serious condition hours earlier.

"She's feeling much better. She said all the tests were negative, and she's going home tomorrow," her spokesman Gary Rosen told the Daily News. "She will be back taping her TV show on April 12 as scheduled."

The Brooklyn-born TV judge was working on the set of her hit show when a wave of nausea and "intestinal discomfort" caused her to halt production, Rosen said.

"I'm just exhausted, and my body was telling me it needed a day to chill," the spitfire judge told in a cell phone call from her bed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

"I was feeling funky this morning ... funky enough that I knew someone should give a gander over what I got," said the jurist, whose full name is Judith Sheindlin.

"I'm exhausted. I'm just tired," Sheindlin, 68, said. "A lot of things just zoned together, including the bad news of the world."

"At my age, I know my body," she told TMZ, adding that she'd had an MRI. "My body is fine."

An ambulance responded to a 911 call for a "person down" at her studio on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood shortly after 9 a.m., a fire official told the Daily News.

"She was rushed to a nearby hospital in serious condition," Capt. Jaime Moore of the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

Her producer quickly shot down Internet rumors that the emergency trip stemmed from recent oral surgery and that she turned "incoherent" on the bench before the 911 call.

"Absolutely not!" Executive Producer Timothy Regler told the Daily News when asked if she had trouble speaking.

"That's ludicrous," he said of the alleged dental link. "She had her teeth cleaned yesterday."
