Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans were in for a major shock when the doctor revealed to Kim Kardashian, in the premiere episode of season 17, that her antibodies had tested positive for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. She was put under medication in order to stop the symptoms. But, in some amazing news, episode 2 of KUWTK Season 17 saw Kim being informed that she was not battling lupus. The 38-year-old reality star had gone for an ultrasound on her hands to find out what the cause of her joint paint was.

While it's not lupus or carpal tunnel, which she was diagnosed with in 2018, Kardashian has got psoriatic arthritis, stemmed from her psoriasis. "First of all, if you have any evidence for lupus, we would have screened it. You do not have lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. So, you can reassure all your buddies. You probably have psoriatic arthritis because psoriasis comes and goes. There’s nothing there right now," the doctor revealed to an extremely relieved Kim. A reinvigorated Kim K said that while the pain will come and go, it won't stop her from living life to the fullest.
