Alba's 'stroke' fear

Feb 14 2013, 6:36am CST | by

Los Angeles, Feb 14 (IANS) Actress Jessica Alba says she once thought she was having a stroke in the middle of the night and was taken to the hospital.

Los Angeles, Feb 14 — Actress Jessica Alba says she once thought she was having a stroke in the middle of the night and was taken to the hospital.

The 31-year-old was sleeping when she woke up to find her hand going numb.

"Basically, I thought I was having a stroke last week... It was 2.30 in the morning and I woke up and my hand started to go numb. The entire thing went numb," Alba said on a US chat show.

"It was dead, I couldn't move it. My whole arm went numb, I got cold sensations in the back of my neck to the front. I can't move my face," she added.

The actress was taken to the hospital for a check-up and it was revealed that she was suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, a common condition that causes pain, numbness and a tingling sensation in the hand and fingers.
