A rep for Joan confirmed the news, adding that the ‘pain has been excruciating but fortunately she’s dealt with it, and she’s OK now.’

She is ‘enjoying the rest of her holiday’ in St. Tropez’ as she recovers, but pinched nerves are ‘brutal’ and ‘the most painful thing.’

Despite the pain and recovery time, the famously stylish star’s rep insisted that ‘this will not inhibit her fashion whatsoever’ and that it’s ‘fine’ for her to wear heels.

A pinched nerve occurs when ‘too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues, such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons,’ as per the Mayo Clinic.

This pressure can lead to intense pain, along with tingling, numbness and/or overall weakness.

Though rest is the most common way to heal a pinched nerve, more serious cases may require surgery to relieve the pain.

The Dynasty star revealed her health ordeal to her 278,000 Instagram followers  in July while sharing a snap of herself posing on a yacht during her St. Tropez holiday.

‘Enjoying a great day out, one week before I had to go to the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco for a trapped nerve in my leg,’ captioned the UK native.

Though the pinched nerve was less than ideal, she was grateful for the hospital staff’s care.

‘Not fun! But they were great!’ Joan concluded.
