American actress and author Tori Spelling is undoubtedly overwhelmed with the amount of time she's had to pay a visit to the doctor in recent times.

The actress revealed that her daughter was diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine which she claims is hereditary and from her husband, Dean McDermott's side of the family.

The host of "Love at first lie" previously shared a photo of Stella, her 14-year-old daughter, dressed in a hospital gown and wearing wires attached to her body. This came after her son, Beau, visited the doctors following his battle with flu and high fevers.

The "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum was also hospitalized after she revealed she "felt too sick to work," a revelation that was taken lightly by fans.
