TEEN Mom’s Jenelle Evans has been dragged by her fans for dancing in a new TikTok video despite saying she had a spinal disorder
Jenelle, 29, took to TikTok on Thursday to perform a solo routine dance routine complete with twerking and elaborate back bends.
The mom of three was trying her hand at a viral dance trend which sees TikTok fans roll their backs from the head down and finish up in a twerk.
“This is as good as I got, someone teach me,” Jenelle captioned the post.
Fans quickly ran to the comments to slam her and roll their eyes as she complained in another video about her spine cyst.
“How can you do that with a spinal cord cyst,” one TikTok user wrote.
Another added: “But I thought you were in so much pain and soon wouldn’t be able to walk?”
And a third wrote: “Real question, how can you do that if you have that pain in your back that you talked about in your YouTube vid?”
But other fans rushed to her defence, pointing out that Jenelle had included the hashtag ‘draft’ in the caption, suggesting she had previously recorded the video and only posted it now.
Her outfit and video location for does match another dance video she posted in May – when she was called out for being a “liar” for claiming she was cheerleading captain – but long after she first started experiencing back pain.
The mom of three recently admitted that her doctors are “stumped” about what can be causing her pain.
In April, she shared a health update with her Teen Mom 2 fans.
The ex Teen Mom 2 star revealed previously that she has a fluid-filled cyst in her spine.
However, after a check-up with a neurologist and several different MRI scans, Jenelle says doctors still aren’t sure what is causing the pain.
In an emotional video posted on Monday, she said: “I’m just sick of having so many doctors tell me over the years that they don’t know what’s going on with me. I’ve told them I have constant back pain.
“And my neck cracks like ten times a day. And he said maybe we need to get an X-Ray of you bending your neck, and then bending it backwards, and then we’re going to see if your bones misalign or something.
“He said sometimes your spine is just made like that when you’re born and people end up developing a syrinx. So I don’t know. Nobody knows. But I can’t freak out about it.”
She added: “I don’t know, it’s hard to hear doctors say we don’t know. Just like, we see it, but we don’t know.”
Syringomyelia is the development of a cyst (called a syrinx) within the spinal cord, which causes pain and weakness and in some cases can lead to paralysis.
The symptoms include headaches, pain in the neck, arms and back, loss of reflexes and muscle weakness and wasting.
The Teen Mom alum has been having tests done for the past five months and not getting any answers, which she described as “really frustrating.”
In March, Jenelle – who is married to David Eason – had an MRI, which revealed the cyst in her spine.
“It’s pretty concerning. That’s not good. None of this is good,” she said as she fought back tears.
She said of her daily health struggles: “I have neck pain every day and headaches every day and my neck cracks every day.
“I do what I can. By this time, at 5 o’clock, I usually have to tap out because my neck hurts so bad. I try to get up and be happy and act like I don’t have this problem.
“I have head shaking too, it’s kind of embarrassing, it feels like a tremor. My hands are not that steady and my fingertips are numb most of the time.”
“It’s kind of scary. I feel like slowly I’m losing my ability in my hands and I really need that. I really need my hands!” she added.
Jenelle – who is mom to Jace, 11, Kaiser, six, and Ensley, four – went on: “It really sucks. It had to be the worst thing ever when I got my results.
“It’s just, like, your life is off course. I have my kids here and my work is online. A lot of things are going through my mind right now.”
Jenelle discussed possible courses of action and considered the prospect of having the cyst removed.
