Keeping Up With The Kardashians season 17 has aired, bringing with it a major health scare for Kim Kardashian. After undergoing a blood test to determine the cause of some painful physical symptoms she'd been dealing with for some time, including swollen joints, headaches and general fatigue, the KKW Beauty founder got a call from Dr Daniel Wallace with her results later on in the episode.

"Your antibodies are positive for Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis," Wallace explained, before going on to list a handful of the illnesses' corresponding side effects, joint pain and exhaustion among them. Still, the doctor made sure to remind her that these test results alone don't necessarily confirm the actual presence of either disease. "Sometimes you can get false positives in these screenings," he said, and they scheduled a follow-up appointment.
"I'm freaking out," Kim tells Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian.
"You don't know," Kylie told Kim. "That's the scariest part, is you just don't know."
Kris then told her daughters to "stay really positive until we get some results."
"You know, you really do get in your head and think about the worst possible things that can happen," Kim said. "So, for the next few days it's gonna be really hell…living, wondering what I have, what's going on and how to fix this."
The new season premieres Monday, September 9th.
