As season 17 of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" (KUWTK) approaches, it's clear from a recent trailer that fans are in for lots of drama.

Along with their usual skirmishes, we'll also see why Kim Kardashian West was so upset at a doctor's office in the trailer which is found below.

In the clip, Kim and her mother Kris Jenner, 63, are seen in the office looking fairly anxious. Kim sits down for the doctor to do an ultrasound on her wrist.

According to the Daily Mail, the procedure was meant to detect any joint inflammation which, as Kim later indicates, can be a sign of lupus. The reality star makes her own conclusions at one point.

"I feel this in my bones, I probably have lupus," she says to Kris, who encourages her daughter to wait for the results and stay positive.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack organs and tissues. This results in joint, heart, lung, brain, and kidney inflammation.

Unfortunately, Kim also has to deal with another serious illness — psoriasis — which she's already opened up about with fans. Back in February, the reality star bravely showed her face during a flare-up.

In an Instagram story captured by Allure, the mother of four showed a closeup of her face covered with a herbal ointment in the affected spots.

"Psoriasis is the [expletive]," she wrote over the shot. Another story photo showed the businesswoman with flared up legs and the caption "Sexy" jokingly written over it.

Kim's fans were appreciative of the fact that she put her flawed body out there, especially since much of her brand is about beauty and perfection in her appearance.

They were even more appreciative when Kim came out with a makeup line designed to work for her flare-ups in July. And when she used her own skin to demonstrate, they were amazed.

People captured the Instagram story where Kim shared before and after photos of her legs with the KKW Beauty body foundation. She's also made use of other family members to promote her products.

Back in June, the 38-year-old showed the foundation on her grandmother Mary Jo's arms who she said asked her to come over and "cover her veins."

In a short video, Kim was seen brushing foundation onto the 84-year-old's hand and arms and the difference was remarkable. Kim also used the post to guide people on using the products.

While psoriasis is difficult to live with it's not typically life-threatening as lupus sometimes can be. Lupus, however, still often allows its victims to enjoy a regular lifespan. Regardless, we hope Kim is spared from it.
