The former Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, suffered a *transient ischemic attack, or mini stroke, she revealed early Thursday morning with a selfie from her hospital bed.
“The last 24hrs have been whirlwind! I landed yesterday morning from LAX (took the red eye right after DWTS) I got home and within minutes suffered a TIA (mini stroke) the left side of my body went completely numb and my speech was gone. Extremely grateful for @sladeosborne @briellebiermann @nikitpressley @kroybiermann for quick reactions! I have 100%of my feeling back THANK GOD. Still in the hospital but I just know I’m getting released today! . #CrazyAgeDoesntMatter,” Kim, 37, captioned the picture, thanking her husband Kroy and eldest daughter Brielle for their “quick reactions.”
A stroke is no joke. Get well soon Kim!
* A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a transient episode of neurologic dysfunction caused by ischemia (loss of blood flow) – either focal brain, spinal cord, or retinal – without acute infarction (tissue death). TIAs have the same underlying cause as strokes: a disruption of cerebral blood flow (CBF), and are often referred to as mini-strokes.
