Tori Spelling shared that her 14-year-old daughter Stella is home and feeling better after being diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine.
The Love At First Lie host posted an Instagram story of her teenager cuddling a dog, with a caption reading “I wanted to thank everyone for all the well-wishes for Stella. She is home and feeling much better. At the ER, she was diagnosed with a Hemiplegic Migraine.”
The actress continued, "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."
The mom of five said it can be "terrifying if you don't know what's happening or about this type of migraine."
"As a migraine sufferer my entire life, I had no idea about this," she wrote. "Grateful to everyone at the ER. They were amazing and took great loving care of her.”
Spelling has used social media to share her own battle with migraines over the years. The 49 year old has several sponsored posts on Instagram detailing her experience living with migraines.
“It is so hard to plan your day when you know you’re going to have a migraine attack,” she shared in a 2022 post.
In Oct. 2011, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star tweeted that she was experiencing terrible migraines after giving birth to daughter Hattie McDermott.
“Anyone else get horrendous migraines right after giving birth? Is it hormones? I've had one for a week now," she wrote at the time. "Nothing is working."

Spelling — who also shares kids Liam, 15, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10, and Beau, 5, with actor and husband Dean McDermott, 55 — has been open about navigating the challenges of motherhood. During a Nov. 2022 interview with People, she noted that the support of friends has been huge with helping her balance work and parenting.
"It's really hard for me because I definitely grew up in a family where we had a lot of support around. I grew up with a nanny full-time, so I was always that girl that was like, 'When I have kids, I'm going to do it all myself,'" she said. "So I still do it all, but I'm still working on that. It's OK to ask for help."
