Based on the singer songwriter's Instagram, Celine Dion has been diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome, and has officially halted her tour.
Stiff Person Syndrome is a neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease.
The disease makes a person's muscles spasm uncontrollably, and leaves difficulties with walking, as well as singing.
"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. Recently I've been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called the stiff person syndrome which affects something like one in a million people. While we're still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what's been causing all of the spasms I've been having. Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal chords to sing the way I'm used to. It hurts me to tell you today that this means I won't be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February."
A great team of doctors has been working alongside the singer to help her get better while her "precious children" has been supporting her and giving her help.
She also noted how she had not been ready to talk about her disorder until now, explaining:
"I'm working hard with my sports medicine therapist every day to build back my strength and my ability to perform again, but I have to admit it's been a struggle. All I know is singing. It's what I've done all my life and it's what I love to do the most. I miss you so much. I miss seeing all of you [and] being on the stage, performing for you. I always give 100 per cent when I do my show but my condition is not allowing me to give you that right now."
Setting her focus on her health right now, Dion immensely hopes she's on the road to recovery.
