Brandi Glanville, known for her fiery personality on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” is sharing a different kind of story now. In an exclusive interview, she spoke about health issues that affected her face and caused a lot of stress.
Brandi says back in August, things took a scary turn. Her lips and face suddenly swelled up, and she felt like she was going into allergic shock. This happened a lot, and it was really scary. She saw seven different doctors, trying to figure out what was going on.
Finally, the doctors had an answer: stress-induced angioedema. This is a condition where stress can cause swelling in the body, including the face.
Brandi believes the intense filming of “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” played a big role in all this. She was on the show with Caroline Manzo, and things reportedly got heated between them. Brandi says the whole experience was very stressful, and it took a toll on her health.
What is stress-induced angioedema?
Angioedema is a condition that causes swelling in the skin and tissues. It can be caused by allergies, medication, or even stress. Stress-induced angioedema is when the swelling is mainly triggered by stress or anxiety.
How did this affect Brandi?
The swelling in Brandi’s face made it hard for her to talk and eat. She also says it affected her ability to taste food. This was all very challenging for her, both physically and emotionally.
What’s next for Brandi?
Brandi is on the road to recovery. She’s getting medical treatment for her angioedema, and she’s trying to manage her stress in healthy ways. She’s also opening up about her experience to raise awareness about this condition and how stress can impact our health.
