Kim Kardashian’s Pain Was So Bad She Couldn’t Use Her Hands

During the latest season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim revealed she’s been struggling with some intense pain in her hands. At first, she and her doctors were worried it was lupus but it was later revealed that she’s been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis.

She’s opened up about her struggle with the diagnosis in an article written for Poosh, her sister Kourtney’s blog. She shared the pain got so bad at one point she couldn’t even use her hands.

“I woke up that morning and I still couldn’t pick up my phone. I was freaking out – I couldn’t even pick up a toothbrush, my hands hurt so badly,” said Kim.

She says she had worked out the day before, specifically arm day, and thought that it was one of the exercises that strained her hands.

“It didn’t cross my mind that it could be anything serious,” said Kim. “As the day went on, I got a bit more movement in my hands, but they really hurt from the inside – I felt it in my bones. Everyone assumed it was just my workout, but I knew this felt different.”

Since her diagnosis, she’s revealed that she’s been on put on medication to help relieve the symptoms.

“I tried everything natural for the longest time and we chose the best route for me so luckily right now everything is under control,” said Kim.

Kim hopes that by sharing her story of struggling with pscoriasis she can help make others who struggle to feel less alone.

“I hope my story can help anyone else with an autoimmune disease feel confident that there is light at the end of the tunnel,” says Kim.
