Keeping Up With the Kardashians season 17, finally premiered and it includes Scott Disick possibly going to prison, Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods drama and Kourtney Kardashian’s 40th birthday bash. And after the Kanye West and Tristan drama aired, it also showcased an intense moment where Kim Kardashian had a health scare.
Kim Kardashian is seen talking to her sister Khloe Kardashian and tells her, “I’ve been feeling so tired, so nauseous, and my hands are really getting swollen. I feel like I literally am falling apart. My hands are numb.” Kim was under the impression that it was all due to the anxiety as she is expecting her fourth baby. But she finally decides to see a doctor.
At the doctor, Kim is asked to do blood tests and while waiting for the results she was understandably “freaking out” and called it “torturous.” talking about the same Kim said, “I have a baby on the way, I have law school. It just can really scare you when you start thinking about how much this is going to change my life.”
She was later seen contacted by her doctor so revealed to her that she tested positive for rheumatoid arthritis and lupus antibodies. Her doctor also explained to her how apart from having joint swelling, she may also have fevers, rashes, mouth sores, and fatigue. Though the doctor also stated that this could be a false positive and that she’ll need to schedule more appointments to get to the bottom of it.
This got Kim freaked out even more and was seen crying to Kris Jenner who tried to help her stay positive. Kim said, “You know, you really do get in your head and think about the worst possible things that can happen. So for the next few days, it’s going to really be hell…wondering what I have, what’s going on, and how to fix this.”
