But the future didn’t seem so bright on Aug. 3, when the Emmy Award winner tweeted, "Back in LA. Unable to move. Numbness and tingling in arm. Going to cedars dr tomorrow. Ah anyone who prays please do!"

She later updated fans: "Waiting on MRI results. No matter what I will be ok. Thanks everything for praying and sending good vibes. #thinkingpositive … Thanks for all the good vibes everyone. Stupid ole neck flares up again. Thanks for the ' neck ' support ! :)"


The source tells Radar, “The injury she is referring to is the same injury that she has been dealing with ever since getting injured two years ago on the set of CBS’ The Good Wife. She still has issues from it, but it’s not slowing her down. Kristen is a trooper!”
