Kim Zolciak Says She Had A 'Mini-Stroke' After 'Dancing With The Stars'

"My body went completely numb."

Kim Zolciak says she suffered a major health setback yesterday after returning home from a "Dancing With The Stars" performance.

Zolciak took to Instagram Thursday morning to tell fans she'd actually had a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), or a "mini-stroke," shortly after arriving in Atlanta. 

Her Instagram caption read: "The last 24hrs have been [a] 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

Though Zolciak says she's getting released today, TIA is a very serious matter usually referred to as a "warning stroke." Generally caused by a clot, the American Heart Association says that "most TIAs last less than five minutes; the average is about a minute. When a TIA is over, it usually causes no permanent injury to the brain." 

"Dancing with the Stars" has yet to comment on the incident.
