After nine weeks of feeling dizzy, exhausted, and numb, E! News host Morgan Stewart was diagnosed with a thyroid condition, she said on Instagram, according to People.At first, Stewart thought her symptoms were related to being a new mom - she delivered her daughter, Row, on February 17.
Her symptoms persisted and over the next few weeks, her arms became numb and she lost her ability to speak. "My entire right arm began to go numb and I once again felt myself fade away from myself, but way more intensely," Stewart said. "I was no longer speaking proper English or able to communicate efficiently."
Stewart told her followers not to put off going to the doctor
Stewart, who first rose to prominence in the reality show Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, underwent a series of blood tests. Her doctor said she had an overactive thyroid and that her condition "could be one of three things: a nodule on my thyroid, Graves' disease or sub-acute thyroiditis (all things that can be triggered by pregnancy)."Stewart told her Instagram followers to go to the doctor if they suspect something is wrong - especially new moms. "We are so programmed to power through EVERY f---ing thing no matter how difficult it is or if we can even see or not," she said.
