Nickelodeon star Kel Mitchell suffers major health scare: 'My arm went numb, I couldn't swallow!'

Kel Mitchell had to drive himself to hospital after suddenly losing the ability to swallow.
The 45-year-old actor was out shopping just before the weekend when he took ill and worried he was dehydrated before going "numb" in his arm and immediately panicked and hurried to the emergency room.
Speaking in a video posted to Instagram, he said: "I was out shopping when suddenly the whole room started spinning. So I was like, 'I must be dehydrated so I need to go get some water, some food.'
"When I did that, the whole right side of my arm was numb, followed by me not being able to swallow. That's when I panicked. And so I drove myself to the hospital."
The former 'Kenan and Kel' star went on to explain that when he went to the hospital he had to have a CT scan and stay overnight but eventually found out that his sudden issues were being caused by a "bulging disc" that had been brought on by a previous injury.
He added: "Because I could not move my right arm, my motor skills were not working, so CT scan, EKGs, everything they started doing on me. That's why I had to stay overnight. It was actually a bulging disc that I had from a prior injury that was pressing up against a nerve, mimicking all those symptoms that I was going through."
Kel concluded his video by thanking God for his health as well as his followers for all of their well-wishes.
He said: "I'm thanking God that I am good. Thank y'all for all the prayers in the comments. Even the crazy ones. I saw the, 'Give him some orange soda in his IV."
