TEEN Mom star Jenelle Evans has asked fans for their prayers after confirming she has been diagnosed with Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
Jenelle, 31, has been open and honest with her followers about her health struggles over the years and took to her Instagram Story on Tuesday to reveal her latest diagnosis.
“I have Mycoplasma pneumoniae,” she told her 3.1 million followers, before asking, “Have you ever had it?”
Mycoplasma pneumoniae bacteria commonly cause mild respiratory infections and can sometimes cause more serious lung infections.
Seemingly inundated with answers, the Teen Mom alum decided to share some of them with her own responses.
When one person asked her if it happened “again after the vacation,” Jenelle replied, “That wasn’t a vacation and I’ve had it for months. I saw a very well known surgeon get my hiatal hernia.”
And when someone else asked what Mycoplasma pneumoniae was, she confirmed it was bacterial pneumonia.
Another person suggested antibiotics and Jenelle said: “Yes, I hope that works. I’ve got some lung problems and my doctors are confused, so we’re slowly trying to figure that out.”
She went on to reveal: “I’ve been struggling with a lot of body aches for over a year now. I hope antibiotics will throw this out of my system.
“It’s pretty crazy. I think I may be susceptible to strong and weak immunity to mono. As a kid?” Jenelle continued.

When another fan wished her well, Jenelle replied: “Thank you so much! I need all the prayers I can get. I was worried.”
Earlier this week, Jenelle posted a VLOG on Facebook from her recent trip to New Orleans with husband David Eason, where she was seen enjoying many alcoholic beverages.
The 58-second clip was titled, “Food and #drink Vlog from #NOLA.”
The mother-of-three’s video begins with her filming herself in front of a full-length mirror as she leans forward and kisses the air.
It then shows her sitting in a car, sipping from a giant Starbucks mug while getting her caffeine boost for the day.
Jenelle then tackles the liquor and records herself sipping a pineapple mimosa from a glass champagne flute.
She then enjoys a sizable disposable mango daiquiri mug before moving on to a pint of locally sourced NOLA beer.
Jenelle confirms exactly what her favorite cocktail is, then enjoys two more peach daiquiris and a Hurricane, a sweet rum-infused alcoholic drink.
Jenelle ended the video by showing off freshly baked bread that she and David enjoyed with some more beer.
Jenelle’s fans were quick to comment on the Facebook post, with one person writing, “Girls you seem in a great place and I love it for you…you’re one of my favorite people on teen mom.”
Another person said: “Enjoy it nicely!” while a third added: “You are so beautiful Jenelle.”
However, a concerned follower asked: “How much do you drink in a day?
And over on Reddit, the comments continued when one person shared the video, writing alongside it: “Imagine you’re 31, have two young children in your care and are going on vacation again for drinking and nude photos do to support the family.”
“My gas is popping just looking at this,” one person commented, while another claimed, “That’s an excessive amount of alcohol. I would sleep under a table if I drank all that.”
A third person remarked, “That’s a lot of booze for someone who is said to have a lot of GI issues.”
Another Reddit user somewhat defended the Teen Mom alum, writing, “I don’t like Jenelle, but having kids doesn’t mean you can’t take a vacation. In other words, with her history of addiction, she really shouldn’t drink.”
