Celine Dion finally discovered the source of her many health issues. Celine Dion posted an emotional video on Instagram on Thursday, December 8th, revealing the root cause of her health problems. Celine Dion’s European tour dates for next year will be canceled due to a newly discovered health issue. “Good day, everyone. I apologize for taking so long to contact you. “I miss you all so much and can’t wait to be on stage with you and talk to you in person,” Dion said in the video.
“As you know, I’ve always been an open book, and I wasn’t ready to say anything until now. I’ve been dealing with health issues for a long time, and it’s been extremely difficult for me to face these challenges and talk about everything I’ve been through. “I was recently diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome, a very rare neurological disorder that affects about one in a million people.” While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know it’s what’s been causing all of my spasms.
Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes making it difficult for me to walk and preventing me from using my vocal chords to sing as I used to.” According to the National Institutes of Health, stiff-person syndrome, or SPS, is a rare neurological disorder with some characteristics of an autoimmune disease. Due to health issues, the singer had to cancel her tour dates.
“It pains me to tell you today that this means I won’t be able to resume my tour in Europe in February,” she choked up. “I have a wonderful team of doctors working with me to help me get better, as well as my precious children who are encouraging me and giving me hope.” Celine admits that getting better is a difficult task. “I’m working hard with my sports medicine therapist every day to regain my strength and ability to perform, but it’s been a struggle,” she admitted. “I only know how to sing.”
It’s what I’ve always done and what I enjoy doing the most. “I really miss you. I miss seeing all of you and performing for you on stage. “I always give it my all when I do my shows, but my condition now allows me to do so right now,” she continued. Dion concluded her message with a note of optimism, thanking her fans. By the end of her speech, Dion had added a note of optimism, thanking her fans: “I want to thank you so much for your encouraging wishes, love, and support on my social media.”
“It means a lot to me,” she explained. “Look after yourself. Take care. I adore you all and hope to see you all again soon.” “I’m getting treatment from my doctors and taking medication, but I’m still having spasms and it’s taking me a lot longer to recover than I had hoped,” she said in an April Instagram video.
“SPS is characterized by fluctuating muscle rigidity in the trunk and limbs, as well as heightened sensitivity to stimuli such as noise, touch, and emotional distress, which can set off muscle spasms,” according to the National Institutes of Health. “The disorder is distinguished by abnormal postures, which are frequently hunched and stiffened.” This mysterious syndrome affects women twice as much as men. According to the institute, loud noises can also cause spasms or falls.
The NIH notes that SPS “is frequently misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, psychosomatic illness, or anxiety and phobia.” All tour dates have been rescheduled for the first two quarters of 2024. We’ll keep her in our prayers and hope she recovers as soon as possible. We miss you and your beautiful voice!
