Celine Dion’s stiff-person syndrome diagnosis
Celine Dion recently revealed that she was diagnosed with a neurological disorder called Stiff Person Syndrome—a rare and incurable disease that can cause debilitating muscle spasms. The singer shared details about her diagnosis in a video as she explained that it would cause her to reschedule a few shows that she had planned for an upcoming tour.
In the video, she said, “I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.” Dion also wrote in the caption. “It hurts me to tell you that I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February.”
Fans were quick to send their good wishes to the singer who will also be seen in a film soon. The singer stars in Priyanka Chopra and Sam Heughan’s upcoming romantic drama, Love Again.
