Maci Bookout, Former 'Teen Mom' Star, Tweets About 'Painful' Mystery Illness


It's a big month for former "Teen Mom" star Maci Bookout, whose MTV show "Being Maci" airs tomorrow (Aug. 18). But instead of spending her time prepping excitedly for the show, the 22-year-old is battling a mysterious illness that makes it hard for her to eat.

Earlier this week, Maci tweeted to her over 1.2 million followers:

i really need to not be sick anymore... back to the doctor tomorrow! i should be on #mysterydiagnosis 😓🙏😷

Which she followed up the next day with:

this illness im dealing with is probably the most painful experience ive ever had physically 😷💊💉 and now my ass hurts from the shot too

By Thursday, Maci wrote:

But it looks like there might be some improvement in her situation, as Maci tweeted this morning --

attempting to eat solid food right now for breakfast🙏 hope it works out! 😷

Is it yet unclear what the reality star is suffering from, but she's at least attempting to put on a brave face for her 4-year-old son, Bentley. An hour ago, Bookout posted this photo to Instagram:

Get well soon, Maci!
