Get well soon! Kristin Chenoweth hinted at some serious health problems via Twitter this week. 

The Emmy and Tony winner, 46, shared some issues that she is going through in the early hours of Monday morning, Aug. 4, and Tuesday morning, Aug. 5. 

"Back in LA," she tweeted. "Unable to move. Numbness and tingling in arm. Going to cedars dr tomorrow. Ah anyone who prays please do!" 

While she didn't offer further context for the scare, Chenoweth's words were met by support, prayers, and well wishes from her fans. 

Almost 24 hours later, the multihyphenate tweeted again, sharing an update on the situation. 

"Waiting on MRI results," she wrote. "No matter what I will be ok. Thanks everything for praying and sending good vibes. #thinkingpositive."

The Glee alum is featured on the cover of the June issue of Women's Running magazine, where she spoke about her health. The petite star told the publication she started focusing on her fitness in her 30s, when she was diagnosed with both asthma and Meniere's disease, an inner ear disorder. 

Chenoweth previously dealt with another health scare, when she was injured on the set of The Good Wife in July 2012. She was hit on the head by lighting equipment, leaving her with a skull fracture and "a rib issue and a hip issue."

"It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife at this time," Chenoweth told Us Weekly following the incident in August 2012. "[I'm] getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern."


Chenoweth updated fans on her status on Tuesday via Twitter. "Thanks for all the good vibes everyone," she wrote. "Stupid ole neck flares up again. Thanks for the ' neck ' support ! :)"
