Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi is opening up about her health issues, revealing that she has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and has sadly been in quite a bit of pain recently. 

On March 5, GG posted a message to Instagram, updating her fans on her battle with the autoimmune disease. "Many of you don't know this, but two years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis," GG writes. "I inject myself once a week in the stomach with proper medication. I've been in lots of pain lately, so I went in for X-rays." 

Wow, we had no idea GG has been enduring this for so long. We think it's great that she's being so open about what she's had to go through.

She added more info in her Instagram caption. "Thank you for your kind words," she writes. "I'm ok... just waiting on results in order to take the next step. Remember, life is too short to complain about the small things. Be grateful for everyday that you're given. #Shahs #Golnesa #Grateful #LoveLife #AlwaysLaugh."

We think GG has great advice, and we really appreciate her positive attitude in the face of such a challenging situation. We wish her all the best.
