Zach Roloff's mysterious illness was the central focus of this week's episode of Little People, Big World, as the popular reality star experienced another health scare so frightening it prompted an emergency trip to the doctor.
Regular LPBW viewers know that Zach has been suffering from severe migraines and vomiting over the course of Tori's pregnancy. The episodes have been so severe that in a recent episode, he told his mom, Amy Roloff, that he felt like he was on his "deathbed."
On Tuesday, Zach confessed to cameras that he's still feeling unwell.
"Lately, I've just been getting really sick. Big, throbbing headaches. It's never been this bad. The headache is what's killing me."
The Roloff family has been concerned that Zach's illness is related to a shunt he had placed in his brain as a toddler. The shunt is intended to drain excess fluids that build up in his brain, which is a common problem for those who have achondroplasia dwarfism like Zach. If the shunt fails, it could be life-threatening, and Zach could require surgery. However, medical tests were inconclusive, and Zach wasn't eager to go under the knife with Tori so close to delivering their baby.
Last night, Little People, Big World fans watched as Zach tried to accompany Jeremy and Audrey to look at their new house, but he was suddenly stricken with a migraine so horrific it made his eyes cross. As soon as Jeremy pulled his car up to the house, Zach jumped out, afraid he will throw up.
