Mama June hospitalized with headache, dizziness

June “Mama June” Shannon was hospitalized Monday after a routine visit to the doctor.

The 43-year-old ‘Mama June: Road to Redemption’ star told TMZ that she had regular checkups, alerting her doctor to recent headaches and bouts of dizziness.

Shannon’s doctor was alerted and then hospitalized her.

The “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” alum is still in hospital on Wednesday and has undergone a series of scans and tests as doctors try to make a diagnosis.

Shannon, who is sober after an intense battle with addiction, assured TMZ that her symptoms are not substance-induced or the result of a relapse.

Her husband, Justin Stroud, whom she secretly married in a courthouse ceremony in March, assisted her during her hospitalization.

Shannon’s health anxiety comes weeks after she apologized to her youngest daughter, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, in a text message for her 17th birthday.

“Hope you have a good day,” she wrote via text message, according to TMZ.

“I am very proud of [you] with everything…graduating from high school that [is] a big problem. I know I put [you] I’ve been through a lot and I’m sorry.”

Shannon went on to say that she is “here now” whenever her daughter needs her.

“I know I’m definitely not perfect, but I’m doing my best,” she wrote. “I know there is a LOT of work and work to be done, but I am confident that [we] shall.”

The reality star closed the message by sending the teen her ‘love’.

Thompson seemed to respond by double tapping the text and “heart” it.

Shannon told TMZ that the high school student thanked her mom in her response, adding that she loves her too.

The mother-daughter duo have had a strained relationship since Shannon’s 2019 drug possession arrest, and Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon was officially given custody of Thompson in April.

“I see her, I do talk to her,” June previously told Vidak For Congress about the new agreement. “We do communicate. So it didn’t make any difference.”

She added: “The only difference is that she doesn’t sit here next to me in my house every day.”
