Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans continues to seek help to diagnose exactly what is at the root of a laundry list of symptoms she has been experiencing for weeks, including pain in her knees, pelvic pain, and severe hot flashes. After multiple trips to doctors and specialists in North Carolina and New York, Jenelle arrived in Los Angeles earlier today to see another specialist. Of course, the TMZ Teen Momarazzi were there to interview Jenelle as she made her way through the airport!
Here is the discussion from the clip:
CAMERAMAN: What happened? The world wants to know, you know, your friends love you —
JENELLE: I have no idea what’s going on right now, so that’s why I’m here — to get answers.
CAMERAMAN: So you’re here to go see a specialist about all this?
CAMERAMAN: What happened? Because I read, like, you couldn’t — your legs weren’t working and —
JENELLE: Yeah, I just — I’ve been having a lot of joint pain, knee pain, pelvic pain, hot flashes — just a lot of weird stuff going on. This has been happening for six weeks consecutively and no one can — a lot of the reason why the doctors are so concerned is because I’m having severe hot flashes.
CAMERAMAN: So are you hopeful that the doctor in LA is going to know a little more?
JENELLE: Oh yeah, definitely.
CAMERAMAN: Do you think it could be too stressful to keep going on with the show? I know you guys are — the new season’s coming out.
JENELLE: Um, I think I’m dealing with it as best I can. Yeah, I mean it is stressful of course, but you know my health comes first before the show.
CAMERAMAN: So if they told you, “Look, you don’t need no more stressors. You don’t need to be worried about a show.” Could you walk away?
JENELLE: Um, possibly, yeah. Possibly.

UPDATE – We’ve had several commenters on our previous stories about Jenelle’s mystery illness who have openly speculated on whether or not it might be Lyme disease, like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Hadid. Jenelle responded to a follower on Twitter who asked her about Lyme disease specifically:
@PBandJenelley_1 did you check for Lyme disease?
