TEEN Mom alumni Jenelle Evans revealed she's having 'tests done' on her heart after revealing a medical condition and resulting spine tumors to fans.
The former MTV star is battling with syringomyelia, a condition the causes fluid-filled cysts (called syrinx) to grow on the spinal cord.
Jenelle opened up about her new medical troubles in a comment on a TikTok video.
She responded to a fan who critiqued her for twerking in the clip, and several others, after alleging that she's in a great deal of pain because of her condition.
The critic commented: "Looks like your back is fine now wish my cancers would heal this fast so I can enjoy the day with my kids."
Jenelle responded: "Whatever you want to think. This was a draft and now I'm having blood circulation tests done to see if my heart is ok.. so year guess I'm just fine."
The commenter didn't seem to buy Jenelle's claims, responding with: "I bet it was a draft but it's okay like I said I wish my health was as good…"
Jenelle shared the video days after the New Year began.

In the clip, she appeared to be stumbling around in baggy sweats before approaching the camera and twerking.
The caption read: "Barely surviving 2021 then stepping into 2022 like…"
Although Jenelle still has the moves, she has been open about the fact that she's struggling because of her health.
Speaking candidly with a fan online, the controversial MTV star revealed that she had lost her "spark" and "motivation."
She blamed the tumors in her back and added that doctors "recently found" a tumor in her neck, which she said "hurts pretty bad."
Jenelle's update came in a TikTok video in which she responded to a commenter who said they were a "huge fan."
"Hey, thanks for the support," Jenelle said in her video, speaking into the camera while laying down on a bed. "I've just been taking things easy lately.
"I'm making my health number one right now, so if it seems like I kind of lost my spark or motivation, I kind of have.
"I've recently found out I have a tumor in my neck which hurts pretty bad … I've just been in a lot of pain lately and my neck is just killing me."
The former Teen Mom 2 star added that she has an "update" with her neurosurgeon next week.
Jenelle first revealed her condition in December, posting a somber video revealing that she "found a few tumors in my spine" and asking for "#PrayersPlease."
Earlier that same month, she posted a TikTok screaming along to an emo song.
Jenelle lip-synced lyrics that said: "I don't need drugs, because I'm already high enough."
She wrote over the clip: "When you already have a growing cyst in your spine… and the doctors 'can't help you. When you become paralyzed got to the ER.'"
The fired Teen Mom star broke the news of her condition on Instagram Stories in March.
She said at the time she was "in shock."
Jenelle went on to elaborate in a YouTube video, explaining that she was dealing with constant headaches and her neck "cracking 10 times a day."
