“I feel like I have heart palpetations. I don’t know what’s going on with me, but it’s taking everything in my power just to like edit videos and look at the computer screen, and then it’s like I have to lay back down.
“I get nauseous. I have to lay back down. I get up. I have to lay back down. I get up. I try again, and then like right now. My head hurts.”
Later in the video, she shared she was going for another doctor’s appointment and getting a special MRI.
Earlier this month, Jenelle said it was a “waiting game” before she could become paralyzed from her spinal cord disorder.
The Teen Mom 2 alum, 29, posted a series of TikToks from others who also suffer from syringomyelia, which is a disorder that causes a fluid-filled cyst to develop within the spinal cord, and talked about the inevitability of becoming paralyzed.
Jenelle laid in bed in a black t-shirt as she “dueted” herself reacting to videos of other women who suffered from the same disorder.
In one video, she nodded in agreement as TikTok user, @syringo_nichole, described the symptoms of living with the rare spinal disorder.
Jenelle looked resigned as Nichole explained dealing with muscular atrophy and the pressure on her heart and lungs, before revealing she had been rushed to the ER just 10 minutes after making the video.
In another TikTok, Jenelle watched sadly as one user used a voiceover to answer the question, “Isn’t it scary to know you’re going be paralyzed?”
She captioned the video: “It’s a waiting game now.”
Jenelle had previously described feeling “in shock” and “scared” after doctors found a fluid-filled cyst in her spine.
She also told followers she had another MRI scheduled for later this year to get an update on her condition.
Jenelle broke the news of her condition to fans on her Instagram Stories, saying she was “in shock.”
The mother-of-three said she’s been battling daily headaches and dealing with her neck “cracking 10 times a day.”
The mom to Jace, 11, Kaiser, six, and Ensley, four went on: “It really sucks. It had to be the worst thing ever when I got my results.
“It’s just, like, your life is off course. I have my kids here and my work is online. A lot of things are going through my mind right now.”
In the spring, Jenelle broke down in tears as she claims doctors are stumped by her “constant” back and neck pain.
However, after a neurology appointment and several different MRI scans, Jenelle says doctors still aren’t sure what is causing the pain.

In an emotional video posted on Monday, she said: “I’m just sick of having so many doctors tell me over the years that they don’t know what’s going on with me. I’ve told them I have constant back pain.
“And my neck cracks like ten times a day. And he said maybe we need to get an X-Ray of you bending your neck, and then bending it backward, and then we’re going to see if your bones misalign or something.
“He said sometimes your spine is just made like that when you’re born and people end up developing a syrinx. So I don’t know. Nobody knows. But I can’t freak out about it. I don’t know, it’s hard to hear doctors say we don’t know. Just like, we see it, but we don’t know.”
Jenelle, who is married to David Eason, recently had an MRI, which revealed the cyst in her spine[/caption]
