MANILA – It’s been a while since Kris Aquino updated her social media account.

On Monday, she broke her week-long hiatus to share to her followers on Instagram the real reason why she hasn’t been posting any pictures in the past week.

The TV host said she has been resting in bed since Wednesday after her blood pressure shot up to 170/108 “from extreme pain due to the tightness of the muscles in my upper back and neck.”

Aquino said there was also a straightening of her cervical spine “that produced a mixed nature of headaches related to migraine.”

The TV host said it was only on Monday that she went out of bed because she could not miss the opening of the second branch of Anthony Taberna’s café.

Aquino is a good friend of Taberna and his wife.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News during the event, Aquino said: “Tuesday nag-start. Wednesday 'yung sobrang lala. It was my uncle’s 82nd birthday so nung pauwi, when I got home talagang I kept throwing up.”

She also begged off from commenting on "anything" fearing she might not remember anything she would say.

“Pasensya na. Huwag niyo ako tanungin ng anything kasi apat 'yung gamot na iniinom ko, baka kung ano ang masabi ko. Nakaapat akong gamot. Hindi ko maaalala lahat ng mga sinasabi ko,” she said laughing.

Michela Cazzola, the Italian girlfriend of Aquino's ex-husband James Yap, gave birth to a baby boy at St. Luke's Medical Center last August 8.

Aquino has yet to return to television after she took a leave from showbiz immediately after the May elections due to health problems.

Last month, Aquino checked in at the ABS-CBN compound, saying she has a meeting to discuss her "return to TV."
