The 41-year-old actor, who has a history of kidney problems, was transported to a hospital, where he underwent emergency dialysis.

"I was foaming at the mouth, a lot of saliva and stuff… and I was twitching," he explained.

The former "Diff'rent Strokes" star said he also suffered a seizure last Friday shortly after he missed a step and fell down some stairs However, he seemed optimistic about the future.

"I've got another 40 years on this planet and I'm not going to worry about seizures," Coleman told "Inside Edition."
