Jessica Alba and Lady Gaga recently suffered some frightening medical emergencies. The prognoses? Well, there’s good news and there’s bad news…

Jessica reveals that she got a clean bill of health after she rushed to the hospital with what she thought were symptoms of a stroke. "It was 2:30 in the morning and I woke up and my hand started to go numb, and then my whole arm went numb and I couldn't move it,” she said this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “And then I got a cold sensation from the back of my neck up to the front. And then I was like, I think, I can't move my face."

Unfortunately, Lady Gaga wasn’t quite so lucky after she admits that, unlike Jessica, she just ignored the warning signs that something was terribly wrong. "I barely know what to say. I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the past month it has worsened," the singer explained in a statement this week. "I've been praying it would heal. I hid it from my staff, I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans.”

Ticket holders' reactions ranged from angry to understanding after Gaga canceled her remaining 21 tour dates so she can undergo surgery to repair a labral tear in her hip.
