Scary: On Thursday, Property Brothers At Home star, J.D. Scott, 43, sat down with his fiance to do a tell all video where he revealed he’s been battling a threatening illness for over a year

JD explained in the video, which he titled, The Truth Behind JD’s Mysterious Last Year, that while Annalee was out of town one day, he suddenly started experiencing terrifying symptoms like intense heat sensitivity and passing out. 

‘That event there was so bad that I thought I was dying… I was preparing all my estate and writing out passwords,’ JD said while sitting on the couch next to Annalee.

He then went on to recount the start of the event saying he went through numerous doctors and tests in order to figure out what was going on.

‘I could not wake up, I’d be passed out in bed for days,’ he said.

At first the doctors thought the TV personality had an autoimmune disease and cited lupus. 

But soon after, they diagnosed that he did not have lupus and instead, they believed he had not one, but two brain aneurysms. 

As a result, Scott saw a neurologist who told him he didn’t believe he was suffering any aneurysms after all, but that instead a ‘new pathway had formed’ in his brain, but according to the doctor, it wasn’t a life ending situation. 

In the end, the best answer doctors could give the brother of Jonathan and Drew Scott was that he was ‘not suffering from one thing, that it’s a few things that are culminating into these symptoms.’

Other symptoms included a ‘crawly feeling’ JD would get in his head, which his neurologist explained was a ‘pretty rare’ condition called a nummular headache. 

On top of that, the Great American Country host also said: ‘Walking too much would bring on the symptoms. Heat would bring on the symptoms. So I was very limited in what I could do. But as long as I was within an area that I could control, I could actually do things.’

The couple then went to see Dr. Scott Jacobson, a physician who utilizes both western and holistic medicine in his practice. 

Dr. Jacobson helped J.D. start antibiotics, along with a diet that excludes wheat, dairy, soy, gluten and sugar and according to the HGTV host, he started to feel ‘somewhat better after less than a week.’ 

JD finished the video by saying that he isn’t completely healed yet but that at times, he’s gone back to feeling like his normal self.

He then encouraged fans to ‘try every avenue’ if they face issues with their own health. 

‘I appreciate all of you. We’re getting there. Lots of good stuff to come,’ J.D. concluded.    

Congrats! J.D., whose younger brothers are the stars of the Canadian house-flipping show, announced his engagement at the end of last year. Pictured in 2018
