Glee actress Nene Leakes has blamed her jet-setting lifestyle for her recent health crisis.

The Tv star, who also appears on reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta, alerted fans to her medical scare on Monday (18Nov13) by posting a photo of herself in a hospital bed with intravenous (Iv) drips in her arm, receiving treatment for blood clots in her lung.

In a series of Twitter.com posts, she explained, "I have been very sick for the past couple of days... My arms are hurting wit (with) these Ivs. Blessed to be alive..."

Leakes offered up no further information about the nature of her condition in the Twitter posts, but she has now opened up about her illness in a candid post on her website.

Updating fans on Tuesday (19Nov13), she wrote, "Late last week I wasn't feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath. I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out. After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung.

"I'm told this happened to me because of the constant travelling around the country that I do for my job. I'm thankful to be alive as the doctor advised me that most people don't recognise the symptoms of blood clots and don't go to the doctor and that's when the big problems start happening."

Leakes has since been discharged from the hospital and is currently recovering at home.
