Tori Spelling is providing an update on her daughter Stella’s health after the 14-year-old was hospitalized. The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum revealed on her Instagram story that Stella was diagnosed with a Hemiplegic Migraine after being rushed to the ER.
“At the ER, she was diagnosed with a Hemiplegic Migraine,” she wrote. “It’s a condition that affects one side of the body. Signs of a Hemiplegic Migraine attack are similar to what would be presented in a stroke, that typically includes sudden severe headache on one side of the brain, weakness, and numbness on one half of the body.”
Stella’s diagnosis came after a tough few months of dealing with illnesses in her family. Tori’s 5-year-old son Beau had been out of school for three weeks due to sickness, and just prior to the holidays, the Love At First Lie host was hospitalized herself after experiencing “crazy dizziness” and “having a hard time breathing.”
Stella’s diagnosis is something that many people may not be familiar with. A Hemiplegic Migraine is a type of migraine that affects one side of the body and is often mistaken for a stroke. Symptoms include a sudden, severe headache on one side of the brain, weakness, and numbness on one half of the body.
Fortunately, Tori reports that Stella is feeling much better and is now at home. The actress also took the time to thank the medical staff who took care of her daughter, saying that they were “amazing and took great loving care of her.”
Tori also used the opportunity to remind her followers of the importance of being kind to those who are sick, saying that “for people like me, NOT working is a nightmare.” She encouraged her followers to take people at face value and show kindness instead of doubtfulness, adding, “remember, for people like me, NOT working is a nightmare. I’m a hustler and a workaholic. I always choose work.”
