Kim Kardashian was left in tears during the season premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians as she tested positive for autoimmune condition lupus as well as rheumatoid arthritis.

During a new episode of the reality TV show, Kim receives a call from Dr. Daniel Wallace with her results. 

"Your antibodies are positive for Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis," Wallace explained. 

Wallace went on to explain a list of the illnesses' corresponding side effects including joint pain and exhaustion. 

He, however, confirmed that this does not mean that she conclusively had the disease. 

"Sometimes you can get false positives in these screenings."

Kim, who also suffers from autoimmune condition psoriasis, began experiencing aching and swollen joints and fatigue while expecting her fourth child, Psalm.

"Lately, my wrists have started to hurt again, but it’s definitely a different feeling than before. I feel this, like, in my bones," 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.
