The video began with the Teen Mom 2 star crying and struggling to breathe as text onscreen described some of her symptoms, including chest pain and having a hard time breathing after waking up.

Text onscreen then explained that Jenelle had “two antibodies related to Myasthenia Gravis show up on blood tests.”
The video prompted some fans to share their shared thoughts on why the mother of three might be having health issues.
One person wrote: “I’m not trying to be rude but sometimes weight gain does this. It happened to a friend.”
Jenelle gave another update by responding to the fan, writing: “I can hardly walk 5ft without my legs burning like I’m doing squats but I have been trying to take walks around my land lately.”
NEW TEST RESULTS
The video came after the MTV alum gave another update on her health status in a series of Instagram Stories.
In the first slide, Jenelle revealed that “new blood tests results” had come in.
She mentioned that she had “two of the anti-acetylcholine receptor antibodies,” which are “usually found in Myasthenia Gravis.”
According to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America, Jenelle is suffering from a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder.
The disorder has been known to fluctuate the weakness of the voluntary muscle groups.
Muscle weakness takes place when acetylcholine “cannot activate the receptor sites at the neuromuscular junction.”
Jenelle told her fans that this was causing the “blocking and binding in my system.”
In the second slide, she revealed that she “was in the hospital all day” for her “chest pain” and asked fans to “send prayers.”
Additionally, the Teen Mom alum previously revealed she had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia in an interview with E! News.
Jenelle told the outlet: “My entire body gets in so much pain and sometimes I lay in bed and cry.
“For a long time, no one believed my symptoms until I got a second opinion from a new neurologist recently.”
She added: “I now know why my body is acting the way it does and it explains a lot.
“I never knew what fibromyalgia was until my doctor diagnosed me.”
Jenelle also credited her husband David Eason, 33, for taking care of her during the difficult time.
The couple share 5-year-old daughter, Ensley.
Meanwhile, Jenelle is also the mother to sons Jace, 12, and Kaiser, 7, with former partners.
