Kim Kardashian is getting emotional about her health.
As the episode began, Kim Kardashian was getting worried due to some concerning symptoms she had been experiencing.
“I’ve been feeling so tired, so nauseous and my hands are really getting swollen,” she explained. “I feel like I literally am falling apart. My hands are numb.”
After a pregnancy test came back negative, she decided it was time to see a doctor. She also ruled out the possibility of the pain having something to do with her carpal tunnel syndrome.
“Lately, my wrists are starting to hurt again but it’s definitely a different feeling,” Kim Kardashian said. “I feel this in my bones. It’s starting to really worry me. I really have to look into this.”
“Based on the symptoms, it looks like I have rheumatoid arthritis,” she speculated. “It’s so scary. So I have to go to the doctor and see what’s going on because I can’t live like this.”
Her doctor agreed that it was possible she had rheumatoid arthritis but had her do some blood work so they could find out more. As she awaited her results, Kardashian West, who at the time was expecting her fourth child, son Psalm, via surrogate, was “freaking out.”
“I have a baby on the way, I have law school,” Kim said. “It just can really scare you when you start thinking about how much this is going to change [your] life. … I can’t living without knowing. These few days are just torturous.”
Finally, at the end of the episode, she got a call from her doctor and found out that her “antibodies are positive for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.”
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that leads to inflammation in tissues and organs, according to the Mayo Clinic.
