Recently, Kim Kardashian suffered from severe pain in her bones. The doctors ran some tests and are worried that it might be something more than arthritis.
Serious health issue
Kim Kardashian West, 38 could be suffering from a serious health condition. The reality Tv star has always been vocal about her health issues in the past. She suffered from early-onset preeclampsia and psoriasis, and now her symptoms suggest that it might be Lupus.
In an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim confessed that she had severe pain in her wrists about a year ago and was told by the doctor that she had carpal tunnel. But lately, she could feel the pain again and it was certainly a different feeling than before. She felt like the pain was in her bones and was starting to get really worried.
While talking about her symptoms to Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban, Kim explained that the pain was so severe that she couldn’t perform normal routine activities like holding a toothbrush or doing her bra.
With so much in her life, from 4 kids, a makeup empire, law school to her regular public appearances, Kim had a lot at stake if the diagnosis was something serious.
Lupus and its symptoms
An autoimmune disease, Lupus causes your body’s immune system to attack your own body- including all vital organs. Selena Gomez also suffered from the condition and had to stay out of the spotlight for several months. The former Disney star went through chemotherapy and a kidney transplant after that.
Singer Toni Braxton also publicly suffered from the same disease.
Trip to the doctor’s
Kim suspected that the cause of her pain could be arthritis and went to see her doctor. After running a blood test, the doctor concluded what Kim was suffering from was definitely more than arthritic pain.
He told her that her antibodies were positive for Lupus and apart from swollen joints, she would get fevers, rashes, and sores and she’d be tired all the time.
But the doc also mentioned that a lot of times, the reports show false positives and has asked Kim to get ultrasounds on her hands and joints to determine what is really going on.
