Kate Moss woke up at the Ritz hotel in London unable to move her right arm last weekend and has since been diagnosed with a nerve disorder, according to friends.
The supermodel was rendered temporarily paralysed because of a disorder called ulnar nerve entrapment.
A friend explained: "Kate was at the Ritz when she woke and had no feeling in her arm, which was terrifying. She saw the hotel's doctor and when she came back, she got a second opinion."
The 38-year-old star, who is about to move into her £7.25 million new home in Highgate, north London, with her husband Jamie Hince, is expected to make a full recovery.
But Jamie will have to do most of the unpacking as Kate has been in a lot of pain and was told the condition could take months to heal.
Kate's housewarming party plans have been put on hold following her hospital drama and she is unlikely to be using the state-of-the-art gym in her new pad, but no doubt the sauna and marble wet room will cheer her up.
