— -- Kim Zolciak is recovering from a very serious health scare on Thursday morning.

The reality star posted a selfie on Instagram from a hospital bed, revealing to her 1.5 millions followers that she had suffered a "mini-stroke."

Zolciak explained that after she returned home to Atlanta from Los Angeles, where she is currently filming "Dancing With The Stars," she suffered a transient ischemic attack, also known as a mini-stroke.

"The left side of my body went completely numb and my speech was gone," the former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star said.

Zolciak thanked her husband Kroy Beirmann, her friend Niki Toney-Pressley, her daughter Brielle Biermann and Brielle's boyfriend Slade Osborne for their "quick reactions." She assured fans that she feels much better and that she will be "getting released today."
