The 64-year-old was transported to Innova Diagnostic Clinic, where doctors and staff treated him.
He underwent a few MRI tests before doctors cleared him.
Later, he appeared at the 15th Tashkent International Film Festival, where he said his health was ‘normal’.
"I experienced something here today that was unexpected," the American Beauty actor told the crowd, as per Fox News.
"I was looking at these extraordinary murals on the walls and I suddenly felt my entire left arm go numb for about eight seconds, and I shook it off, but I immediately told the people I was with what had just happened, and on their advice, we went immediately to the… medical center,” he continued.
He added that he was grateful it wasn’t more ‘serious’.
Spacey attended the film festival to host a masterclass for aspiring filmmakers following his lengthy trial in the UK this year.
In July, the actor was found not guilty of sexual assault against four men at Southwark Crown Court.
The star was accused of sexually assaulting the alleged victims between the years 2001 and 2013.
However, Spacey maintained his innocence, calling the allegations ‘madness’, ‘absolute bollocks’ and a ‘stab in the back’.
He claimed his accusers were financially motivated and that one alleged victim was after 'money, money, and then money'.
After 12 hours, the jury acquitted Spacey of seven counts of sexual assault, one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.
Spacey thanked the jury for the verdict, according to The Guardian.
“I imagine that many of you can understand that there’s a lot for me to process after what has just happened today,” he said.
“But I would like to say that I’m enormously grateful to the jury for having taken the time to examine all of the evidence and all of the facts, carefully, before they reached their decision. And I am humbled by the outcome today.”
