Danielle Busby, 37, continues to find answers about her ongoing mysterious illness and has been “trying to be as patient” as she can.
The OutDaughtered star told PEOPLE, “What I’m learning is that it’s an uphill journey of trying to discover some type of possible autoimmune disease. So it’s not something that’s easily identified. [My] symptoms are so random and so extreme on certain days and like, a little bit more calm or relaxed on other days.”
“I’ve definitely been on a journey of trying to figure out what’s going on and what’s wrong and seen multiple doctors,” she continued. “At this point, we’ve outweighed a lot of things and have had struggles with some things, but still no answers.”
Daniella and her husband, Adam Busby, who share six children, are “trying to be as patient as we can and lower our stress levels.”
The couple opened up about Daniella’s health issues when she was admitted to ER in November 2020.
A month later, Danielle gave a health update to her fans explaining that she had been “seeing multiple doctors” in hopes of finding out what medical condition she has. In early January, she was once again admitted to a hospital and underwent an “invasive test.”
In the recent interview with PEOPLE, Daniella said, “We’ve had scary moments for sure. Some that have scared the crap out of me, honestly … Like, this would check the box and you’re good with this and cleared from this, but move on to the next.”
“And so it’s just an unforeseen future of what is next,” she continued. “How do we get to the answer? So just trying to have patience, I guess, through all that.”
Danielle acknowledges that “it’s a roller coaster right now,” but she said she is leaning on her faith and family as she continues to seek answers about her mysterious illness. “I’m trying to navigate how to adjust what we do at home with being a mom and being healthy and doing the things that I need to do,” she said. “So it’s a journey.”
