As she laid in bed wearing a comfortable grey t-shirt with cat-eye glasses, Jenelle, 29, took a selfie video to give her fans a health update. 

“On a real note, please don’t ever get this done… a CT myelogram. Y’all told me it wouldn’t be so bad but not I’m sitting here like can’t really walk,” she said. 

The Teen Mom then explained: “I have sciatica on my legs and it was way worse than I thought it would be. 

“When they put the dye in… y’all I felt like I had a dagger in my back. It was bad.”

In a separate post, she shared a video where her husband is heard in the background, captioned: “Still recovering but David is keeping me laughing.”


Last week, Jenelle told fans doctors are investigating why she's suffering from a "neck popping" issue and underwent an “invasive” spinal cord procedure. 

On her Instagram stories, she shared: "I know a lot of you are probably wondering, 'Well a CT scan isn't that bad with contrast. 

“You just get it done. You walk out. You're done.' Yeah that's a normal ct scan. What I had done was a CT myelogram. 

“So what they do is basically you get a spinal tap. You get an epidural. And they put the dye into your spinal cord.

"And then it glows up and then they do x-rays and CT scans like boom, boom, boom, before the dye goes away. And then it shows the inside of your spinal cord. 


“And that is why I got this done was to look more in depth because yes, I have MRI's. Yes I have CT scans. Basically I have a neck popping issues, and we don't know why.”

The mom-of-three added: "Then after this procedure is done, they don't want you getting up. They don't want you doing any extraneous activity for 24 hours. I have to lay here in bed flat.

"Yeah that so there's no spinal fluid leaking out of the incision site. So yeah this is pretty invasive, and now I'm bedridden for two days.”

Jenell also shared a pic of her in the hospital with an IV still in her hand, and captioned: "I did it y'all. Thanks for the motivation. I'll make a YouTube video about this entire topic for y’all."
