We thought we knew everything about Kyle Richards, but the RHOBH star is opening up about her struggle with Fibromyalgia and the chronic pain that comes with it.
Kyle revealed that she started getting this pain when her mother died. “My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, but as my mom was sick and taking care of her I started feeling really sick myself. I went to a lot of different doctors and they would say, ‘Oh, you’re just depressed because your mom died.’ And I was like, ‘I’m just not buying that it’s only I’m depressed. Why am I having all these crazy symptoms?'” Kyle said in an interview on The Healer. “Then I was talking with someone and she said, ‘You have fibromyalgia. Everything you just said is fibromyalgia.’ So I went to this doctor who specializes in it, and he asked me a lot of questions. All of a sudden I felt like I had an answer and I felt better because it caused so much anxiety.”
Charlie Goldsmith started to use energy to help heal Kyle in the episode, she said that she felt a “warm, tingling sensation going through the area that bothers me most,” which is her neck and shoulders.
Kyle was hopeful this would help her pain. “That would be amazing to think, you know, that I could just be free of these symptoms and my husband [Mauricio Umansky] would never have to hear about it again,” Kyle said.
