The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member reveals she experienced a bout of paralysis after flying home to Atlanta, Georgia from Los Angeles, where she is competing on TV competition show Dancing with the Stars.

Doctors subsequently discovered she had suffered a transient ischemic attack.

She shared a photo of herself from her hospital bed on social media on Thursday (24Sep15) and captioned the snap, "The last 24hrs (hours) 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 (sic)".

Zolciak credits her husband, American footballer Kroy Biermann, and her eldest daughter Brielle for their "quick reactions" in getting her help, and she has assured fans she is now on the road to recovery.

She added, "I have 100% of my feeling back THANK GOD. Still in the hospital but I just know I'm getting released today!".
