Most recently, Jenelle spent some time in the hospital and in doctors’ offices undergoing a battery of tests that included wearing a heart monitor after a visit to the cardiologist’s office.

The 30-year-old mom of three recently conducted a Q&A in her Instagram Stories and revealed how she’s feeling mentally these days.

One of Jenelle’s 3.1 million Instagram followers asked the self-described digital creator, “How are you doing mentally?”

Despite all the testing, hospital and doctors’ office visits, Jenelle was happy to report, “Just taking things easy and trying to stay stress free but waiting on test results from my cardiologist still and stress test next month.”

As Monsters and Critics reported, Jenelle was asked to wear a heart monitor for 48 hours after her D-dimer test results – a blood test that measures D-dimer, which is a protein fragment that your body makes when a blood clot dissolves in your body – came back elevated.

Rounding out the questions about Jenelle’s overall wellbeing, another one of her fans asked her, “How are things at home? Kinda general question nothing particular.”

The wife to David Eason responded, “Things are actually smooth lately, can’t complain.”

Jenelle isn’t the only one in her household who has experienced health issues recently. Earlier this month, the former reality TV star shared that her daughter Ensley was admitted to the hospital for a stomach bug, but it appears that Ensley has since fully recovered.

Teen Mom: The Next Chapter premieres on Tuesday, September 6 at 8/7c on MTV.
