Danielle Busby shares health update

After going through different medical tests in the last few months, Danielle shared an update on her illness.

“I’m just like on a wave and have a lot of ups and downs and different forms of pains,” Danielle told ET. “From physical pains, to migraines, to numbness, to tinglings, to digestive problems, to a little bit of skin issues. It’s just a bunch of random things…but there really is no identifying conclusion to this.”

“I’m looking at a possible autoimmune disease, and sometimes that’s just not easily defined, ” she explained further. “I’m just kind of having to go through a lot of the same processes over again, restarting different routines of blood work and everything.”

Danielle added that she has prioritised her mental health, using fitness and inner spirituality to “help keep my mental state aligned.”
