Kim Zolciak-Biermann Opens Up About 2015 Stroke, Reveals She’s Still Coping With After-Effects

Kim Zolciak-Bierrman reveals she’s still suffering from some lingering affects from the stroke she suffered in 2015, and has taken to social media to make fans aware of the warning signs.

“As you know I had a stroke in Sept 2015 and when Brielle called Kroy to tell him something wasn’t ‘right’ with me I remember him yelling, ‘Brielle get her in the car NOW and take her to the hospital fast every minute count!’ It’s TRUE!” she wrote in a caption to an image featuring information on how to recognize a stroke when it happens.

“And I’m so thankful for everyone’s quick thinking,” she continued.” I’ve never seen doctors/nurses move as fast as they did the second I was wheeled in. I’m so thankful for my medical team.”

The “Dancing With the Stars” participant and former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star divulged that she is almost completely recovered, but still suffers from the occasional symptom, revealing “sometimes my tongue slips when I speak, and sometimes I have the word on the tip of my tongue but it just doesn’t come out.”

Other than that, she says she’s feeling “great,” but believes it’s important to warn others who may find themselves in a similar situation. “I had my stroke at 37!! It can happen to anyone at any age!!” she wrote. “When in doubt please always check it out!!”
