Kim Kardashian Says Lupus Symptoms Are 'Under Control' After Going on Medication

Comforted by sister Kylie Jenner, the reality star admitted she'd been experiencing swollen joints, headaches and general fatigue ahead of the arrival of her fourth child Psalm, who was born via surrogate in May. "We're here in NY, it's Fashion Week and I have a test coming up, so I have to stay in and I have to study", she said. "That's the scariest part, is you just don't know".

During Sunday's KUWTK episode, which was filmed before son Psalm was born in May via surrogate, Kardashian West explained she was getting increasingly anxious due to some concerning symptoms she had been experiencing. "But lately my wrists have started to hurt again, but it's definitely a different feeling from before", she said.

"Your antibodies are positive for Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis", Kim's specialist Dr Daniel Wallace explained, moments after which the famed Kardashian broke down in tears. "I feel like I literally am falling apart".

Sometimes, however, these antibodies can form to attack normal, healthy cells-as is the case with autoimmune diseases like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis-Brad Rovin, MD, director of the division of nephrology at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center tells Health. Apparently, Kardashian West's fans will have to continue Keeping Up with her-and her health issues-to find out more.

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. There is no cure for lupus, only treatments like courses of steroids to reduce the symptoms.

"This is what I've needed, I've been obsessed with traditional shapewear for about 15 years but I've always been cutting it up and making my own styles because every brand that I found just wouldn't really, they just didn't have some of the things I really needed", Kim told E!

She added, "You really get into this little depression for a minute, I got myself out of it, but it was really scary to get myself through that".
