People are started to get a little bit more detail that left Jamie Foxx in and out of hospitals and nearly on this deathbed after he recently provided the first brief details about the medical emergency he endured last year. No official cause has ever been disclosed about the incident, although the Oscar-winning actor recently appeared on video (via People) telling a group in Phoenix, Ariz. that his emergency all started with a “bad headache” in April 2023.

“I asked my boy for an Advil,” Foxx said and then snapped his fingers. “I was gone for 20 days. I don’t remember anything. So they told me – I’m in Atlanta – so they told me my sister and my daughter took me to the first doctor. … They gave me a cortisone shot.”

Foxx said doctors ultimately told him that “something’s going on up there,” pointing to his head. But he added: “I won’t say it on camera.”

When You Should Worry About Headaches

How do you know if it’s “just a headache” or if it could be a symptom of something more serious? A headache typically causes pain in your head, face, or neck area. Get urgent medical attention if you have severe, unusual pain or other signs and symptoms. Your headache may be a sign of an underlying illness or health condition.

Your headache pain may be serious if you have:

  • sudden, very intense headache pain (thunderclap headache)
  • severe or sharp headache pain for the first time
  • a stiff neck and fever
  • a fever higher than 102 to 104°F
  • nausea and vomiting
  • fainting
  • dizziness or loss of balance
  • pain that wakes you from sleep
  • pain that gets worse when you change position
  • persistent face tingling and auras
  • confusion or difficulty understanding speech
  • droopiness on one side of your face
  • weakness on one side of your body
  • slurred or garbled speech
  • difficulty walking
  • hearing problems
  • pain that begins after coughing, sneezing, or any type of exertion
  • constant pain in the same area of your head
  • seizures
  • unexplained weight loss
  • swelling on your face or head
  • a bump or injury on your head
  • an animal bite anywhere on your body

When Jamie Saw “The Tunnel” in Near Death

Back in December 2023, the “They Cloned Tyrone” star received a surprise award at a Critics Choice event, saying that “I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy” after going through his medical issue.

Foxx received the Vanguard Award for his performance in the hit Amazon movie, The Burial, based on a true story, and took to the stage to accept his award. In his acceptance speech, in pure Jamie Foxx fashion, he shared some great jokes and laughs but also got really emotional when discussing
every health challenge he faced leading up to that moment.

“I couldn’t do that six months ago, I couldn’t actually walk to [the stage]. And I’m not a clone, I’m not a clone. I know a lot of people saying that I was cloned out there,” he jokingly told the crowd at the Fairmont Plaza Hotel in Century City.

“It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now, it’s different. I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy because it’s tough when it’s almost over, when you see the tunnel. I saw the tunnel, I didn’t see the light. It was hot in that tunnel too, I don’t know where I was going. ‘Shit, am I going to the right place?’”

Foxx was given his award at the start of the show, but unlike the rest of the recipients, his honor was not announced ahead of time

“The Burial” star went on to thank his friends and fans for their outpouring of support and prayers.

“The one thing that I have to get used to now is the ‘Lord, have mercy, Jesus,’” which is what he says people will utter when they see him in person. “I have a new respect for life, I have a new respect for my art,” he continued.
