Kim Kardashian tests positive for lupus, rheumatoid arthritis

Kris Jenner

"You don't know", Kylie told Kim. "I feel this, like, in my bones", said Kardashian in a scene from the September 8th premiere episode.

On the show she said: "Lately, my wrists have started to hurt again, but it's definitely a different feeling than before".

Khloé Kardashian accompanied her sister to the doctor's office, where Kardashian was told by her doctor, "The worst-case scenario is that this is the start of a systemic process, rheumatoid arthritis".

Unfortunately, the premiere episode did not reveal Kardashian's ultimate diagnosis, but we hope a scare is all it was.

Kim Kardashian live-tweeted during the episode, telling fans that thinking about the pain in her hands and what it could be is really scary, and she was anxious to just figure out what was wrong.

"We're going to talk about it next Sunday, but I was able to find an fantastic doctor, Doctor Wallace, and we figured out what the problem is", she shared on Tuesday's Today.

The doctor made a decision to order ultrasound scans on Kim's hands and joints to get more information about what she is truly facing, however they did not reveal his diagnosis during the premiere.

"It just gets really scary when you start thinking about how much this is gonna really change my life", the socialite said in her show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Kardashian West has often shared her health struggles with her fans, including her struggle with psoriasis and her hard pregnancies.

"Your antibodies are positive for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis", Wallace told her, before adding the positive did not conclusively mean she had developed the disease, adding: "Sometimes you can get false positives in these screenings". "It makes me feel confident by tightening in my waist and flattening my tummy", she says of the bodysuit, adding that she would probably wear it out in public depending on the occasion. There is no cure for lupus, only treatments like courses of steroids to reduce the symptoms.

Rheumatoid arthritis also is an autoimmune disorder that affects the lining of a person's joints and can lead to painful swelling, according to the Mayo Clinic. And you really do get into this little depression for a minute.
