The reality television star, 30, revealed the shocking news to her fans via her Instagram Story early Friday morning, in which she also shared that she might be suffering from an autoimmune disorder.

‘Please just send prayers,’ she added. ‘Thanks! I’ll explain later, too much to type.’
The Teen Mom 2 star expanded on her condition in another Instagram post, according to Page Six.
‘New blood test results are in for me…I have 2 of the anti-acetylcholine receptor antibodies: blocking and binding in my system. Usually found in myasthenia gravis,’ Evans revealed.
Myasthenia gravis is ‘a chronic autoimmune disorder in which antibodies destroy the communication between nerves and muscle, resulting in weakness of the skeletal muscles,’ according to Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The disease is commonly found in women in their 20s and 30s and men after they turn 50. There is no known cure for the disorder.
While it’s unclear if medical professionals are certain about the North Carolina native’s diagnosis, Evans’ trip to the hospital is just the latest in a string of medical issues she’s had to deal with.
The mother of three was diagnosed with the chronic illness fibromyalgia, a condition that causes full-body pain, earlier this month.
At the time Evans told fans that she has been in pain ever since she ‘can remember.’

‘My entire body gets in so much pain and sometimes I lay in bed and cry,’ she said.[For] a long time, no one believed my symptoms until I got a second opinion from a new neurologist recently.’
She also said she wanted her ‘kids to know that some days are good and some days are bad with fibromyalgia.’
Evans shares three children with three different partners: 7-year-old Kaiser with Nathan Griffith, 5-year-old Ensley with her current husband David Eason and 12-year-old Jace with Andrew Lewis. She’s also the stepmother to Eason’s daughter Maryssa.
She gave birth to Jace just months before her 18th birthday, and then began a starring role on Teen Mom 2 from which she was fired in 2019.
