On the season premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian is worried that she may have Lupus. “Lately, my wrists have started to hurt again, but it’s definitely a different feeling than before. I feel this, like, in my bones,” said the reality star.
A year ago Kardashian was diagnosed with carpal tunnel and was ordered by her doctor to stop taking selfies because it was hurting her wrists. The KUWTK stars newest health scare came right before Psalm, was born.
“I just am, like, freaking out. I have a baby on the way, I have law school. It just really can scare you when you start really thinking about how much this is gonna really change my life,” said Kardashian.

Khloé went with her 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. But until I see some of your blood work, I won’t really know.”
Later in the episode, Kim got a call from the doctor who told her the results from her blood test. Kardashian was heartbroken to find out that her antibodies tested positive for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. The doctor also said that it is possible to get false positives in the initial screenings, so he ordered her to get ultrasound scans on her hands and joints to know for sure.
Thinking about the pain in my hands and what it could be is really scary and can get you in a scary head space. I was so anxious to just figure out what was wrong #KUWTK

“You really do get in your head and think about the worst possible things that can happen,” said Kardashian. “So, for the next few days, it’s gonna be really like hell living, wondering what I have, what’s going on, and how to fix this.”
The diagnosis was not revealed in the episode, but we are sending positive vibes Kim’s way.
