Date September 9, 2019 16:25

Kim Kardashian may look like she's living the fairytale life with a successful business, happy family and cute kids. But this doesn't mean she does not have her struggles.

The mother of four has had her share of health issues including psoriasis. She also has placenta accreta, a condition which makes labor and delivery difficult and explains her decision to have a surrogate carry two of her children.

It has now been revealed that the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star may be facing another health setback.

During the season premiere of the reality show on Sunday, Kim revealed that her wrists were hurting, saying that she felt the pain "in my bones." This particular worry began just before her fourth child Psalm was born. She said:

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.

Her sister Khloe accompanied her to visit a doctor. Later in the episode, Kim's doctor called to share the results from her blood tests. The reality star was shocked to learn that she tested positive for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

The doctor attempted to assure her by saying that false positives could happen during initial screenings so further tests would be done before giving a final diagnosis.

Kim said that this feedback only worried her even more as she would find herself wondering what was going on with her body until she got a definitive answer.

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.

As the premiere was airing, Kim posted a tweet where she shared that the experience was "really scary" as she was "anxious" to find out what was going on. Unfortunately, the episode didn't give a confirmation on whether she really had lupus.

Nevertheless, the reality star's fans have shared messages of encouragement and support via social media.

Many assured the star that everything would be alright.

Let's hope this was simply a health scare and nothing more concerning is going on with the star.
