Tori Spelling shares daughter Stella’s diagnosis after hospital
Tori Spelling’s daughter Stella is back home and “feeling much better” after she was hospitalized last week.
The “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum shared on her Instagram Story, which since has expired, that her 14-year-old daughter had been diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine and is recovering.
“At the ER, she was diagnosed with a Hemiplegic Migraine. It’s a condition that affects one side of the body,” Spelling, 49, wrote over a photo of Stella relaxing with their dog.
“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.”
Spelling described the experience as “terrifying” because she and her family had no clue what was happening to their daughter.
“As a migraine sufferer my entire life, I had no idea about this,” Spelling concluded her message. “Grateful to everyone at the ER. They were amazing and took great loving care of her. 🙏❤️”
Spelling and husband Dean McDermott’s family was plagued with health issues in December, with the “Scary Movie 2” actress being hospitalized herself. Although Spelling believed the New Year would bring a fresh start to her children, she unfortunately experienced otherwise and announced that the “hits” just kept coming when Stella fell ill.
The “Troop Beverly Hills” star also shares daughter Hattie, 11, and sons Beau, 5, Finn, 10, and Liam, 15, with McDermott, 55.
She revealed in December that Beau was sick for the second time after an illness sidelined him from his studies for nearly a month.
“Poor guy was out 3 weeks sick from school,” the former reality TV star wrote on her Instagram Story at the time. “Finally got him well and back in school all last week and boom now sick again!”
She said Beau was throwing up, battling a high fever and felt “so stuffy.” He’s since recovered.
