).

"They call it 'mommy wrist,'" she wrote on the picture. "Are you kidding me?"

While the Based on a True Story star's health announcement was surprising, it didn't stop there. The next day, Kaley followed up on the progress of her injury by delivering a grim update. This time taking a selfie from her bedroom, fans could see her wearing two hand braces instead of only one.

"Did I mention it's both hands?" she later wrote on the post. "Just me sulking feeling sorry for myself."

The Hospital for Special Surgery writes that "mommy's wrist," medically known as De Quervain's Syndrome, happens when inflammation occurs in the wrist or thumb from the various hand positions needed to help care for a baby. What's more, it can cause pain that prevents people from completing simple things like bathing, feeding and changing diapers.

As for how to treat "mommy's wrist," HSS indicates that people with the condition should try modifying their daily activities and wear splints for support. They can also take NSAID medications in order to help with the swelling and pain.

Sending Kaley all the well wishes! We hope she makes a speedy recovery.
