Tony- and Emmy Award-winning singer-actress Kristin Chenoweth thanked well-wishers Tuesday after having sought medical attention when she found herself "unable to move" the day before.

"Thanks for all the good vibes everyone," Chenoweth, 46, tweeted. "Stupid ole neck flares up again. Thanks for the 'neck' support!" The star had sustained a head injury in July 2012 on the set of CBS' "The Good Wife" when a piece of lighting equipment fell on her. She was hospitalized, and released the following day.

On Monday Chenoweth had tweeted, "Back in la. Unable to move. Numbness and tingling in arm. Going to . . . dr tomorrow. Ah anyone who prays please do!" A day later she added, "Waiting on MRI results. No matter what I will be ok. Thanks everything for praying and sending good vibes. #thinkingpositive."

Chenoweth won a 1999 Tony for the Broadway musical "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" and a 2009 Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, for "Pushing Daisies." She additionally suffers from Meniere's disease, an inner-ear disorder that causes vertigo. As well, she revealed in March that her asthma had gone misdiagnosed for a decade until a doctor in her native Oklahoma identified that she had the disease.

After recovering from her head injury, she has guest-starred in two episodes of the TV Land series "Kirstie" and appears in next year's Disney Channel movie "Descendants" and the upcoming films "Hard Sell" and "The Boy Next Door."
