The Teen Mom 2 alum told fans in March 2021 that she was diagnosed with a spinal cord cyst.

Today, the mom of three took to her Instagram Stories for a chat about her FeNO score – a method of diagnosis for asthma, which followed her recent fibromyalgia revelation.

One fan wrote: “You know that ALS is often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia at first,” to which she replied: “Yeah … I’m hoping that’s not what I have.

“Still testing for other stuff.

“And now I have to go get a breathing test done,” followed by an Emoji face icon with rolling eyes.

ALS, which stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a progressive nervous system disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of muscle control.

Fans suggested her symptoms were similar to a condition, myasthenia gravis, to which the star promised she would “mention it to my doc.”

Meanwhile another of the Teen Mom 2’s followers told how they had spotted the reality star at a diner, but did not approach.

Commenting in the midst of her health battles, Jenelle added: “Thanks.

“Lol my anxiety has been super bad today.”

FIBROMYALGIA DIAGNOSIS

The star recently revealed she’d been diagnosed with fibromyalgia in an interview with E! News.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fibromyalgia is a condition that causes pain all over the body, sleeping problems, and fatigue.

An individual with fibromyalgia is more susceptible to pain, and the condition can cause sufferers emotional and mental distress.

Talking to E!, she explained: “I never knew what fibromyalgia was until my doctor diagnosed me.”

TIKTOK CONFESSION

Jenelle shared the news of her spinal cord cyst in a TikTok video, when responding to a fan.

The controversial star was asked: “Hey sweetheart are you feeling better with your hemangiomas & cysts? Were you able to get help? Praying for you!”

Sitting with a hand on her cheek and a worried look on her face, she responded.

“So, yeah, about that. Let me tell you guys a little health update and sorry you’re going through the same thing.

“I got a second opinion from a different neurologist and she’s going to be checking me for ALS.

“Since she has told me this, yes, I’ve been freaking out in my head a lot. I’ve been crying a lot.

“I’ve been crying, like, every single night by myself.

“But we’re redoing all my bloodwork, we’re redoing my nerve study. I have to go get another nerve study done next week because that checks for more diseases.”

She went on: “She referred me to a neurosurgeon about the cyst in my head and the cyst in my spine so we’re going to check that out in March.

“She’s also having me go to a lung doctor because I have a hard time breathing and catching my breath and I’m not sick.

“Since I have cysts popping up everywhere, my doctor wants to check my lungs to see if there’s cyst there too. My hands are really shaky and my thumb grip is almost completely gone on my left hand.”

Jenelle concluded: “Hopefully I’ll get answers soon.”

Fans flocked to the comments with some wishing the North Carolina native well, some suggesting other potential diagnosis’, and others slamming the ex MTV star.

FAN FEEDBACK

One commenter wrote: “Please have them check you for Lyme Disease!! It can often be misdiagnosed with ALS and it’s completely treatable!! Sending Prayers for you!!”

Jenelle responded: “Thanks for the support and prayers.”

Another wrote: “Have you been tested for MS?”

The ex TV star again replied, saying: “Yes I have been tested and I don’t have that either.”

A third fan asked: “Yikes! Why do they suspect ALS? Thats scary! Praying for you!”

Jenelle revealed: “My stomach feels like I’ve been doing ab crunches while sitting.”

Another chimed in: “I pray more than anything in the world you do not have ALS, my dad passed from that in 2014, I wouldn’t wish it upon my worse enemy.”

Jenelle responded: “Me too! I hope I get good answers. I would have to prepare a lot in my life and it’s heartbreaking to think about. I’m sorry about your dad.”

On Reddit, however, fans were far less kind as one user posted Jenelle’s video, writing: “You do not have ALS.”

Another wrote: “Can someone please make a power point presentation of all the illnesses and symptoms she’s claimed over the years

“This is important work.”

Someone else added: “Lord, the hypochondria.”

HEALTH WOES

In 2021, Jenelle made a shocking revelation to fans.

The mom of three said she was “in shock” after her doctors diagnosed her with a “rare” spinal disorder called syringomyelia.

Syringomyelia is the development of a cyst (called a syrinx) within the spinal cord, which causes pain and weakness and, in some, cases can lead to paralysis.

Symptoms include headaches, neck pain, arm and back pain, loss of reflexes, and muscle weakness and wasting.

She elaborated on her condition in a YouTube vlog called “My Neck, My Back.”

Jenelle said she had been battling daily headaches and dealing with her neck “cracking 10 times a day.”

She alum said she had been having tests done for months and not getting any answers, which she described as “really frustrating.”

Jenelle – who is married to David Eason – had an MRI, which revealed a cyst in her spine.

“It’s pretty concerning. That’s not good. None of this is good,” she said at the time, fighting back tears.
