Kim Kardashian tests positive for lupus

On the season premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian was facing yet another health scare.

"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 Kardashian.

KUWTK fans will remember that one year ago, Kardashian was diagnosed with carpal tunnel and, allegedly, ordered by her doctor to stop taking selfies because it was too hard on her wrists. However, selfies were the last thing Kardashian was worried about this time around because the reality star's latest health scare happened right before her and Kanye West's fourth child, 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 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. But until I see some of your blood work, I won't really know."

Later in the episode, Kardashian's doctor called to tell her the results from her blood test. Kardashian was devastated to learn that her antibodies tested positive for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. However, the doctor also stated that it is possible to get false positives in the initial screenings, so he was ordering her to get ultrasound scans on her hands and joints to determine what's really going on.

"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."

During Sunday's premiere, Kardashian live tweeted, saying:

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