Republican Sen. Katie Britt of Alabama indicated in a statement that she had recently gone to the hospital due to facial numbness.

But the 41-year-old senator said that the health issue has been chalked up to nerve swelling.

“While with my family in Montgomery this past weekend, I experienced a sudden onset of numbness in my face. I was admitted to Baptist Medical Center South for evaluation,” Britt noted, according to Chad Pergram of Fox News. “Doctors determined that my symptoms were a result of swelling of a facial nerve, most likely caused by a post-viral infection.

“My condition is not life-threatening, and recovery could take several weeks. I am grateful for the medical professionals providing excellent care, and my family and I are deeply grateful for your prayers,” she added.
