Justin Bieber, a Grammy winner and musician, has revealed that he has been diagnosed with a rare disease that has immobilized half of his face, forcing him to postpone his Justice World tour.
He claims he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which causes facial paralysis and impairs facial nerves as a result of a shingles outbreak.
When a shingles outbreak damages the facial nerve near one of your ears, Ramsay Hunt syndrome develops. According to a medical expert, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear.
The artist posted a video to his Instagram account on Friday evening saying that “I have this illness called Ramsay Hunt syndrome, and it’s caused by a virus that destroys the nerves in my ear and facial nerves, paralyzing my face,” he added. This eye isn’t blinking, I can’t smile on this side of my face, and this nostril won’t move.”
He also smiled and blinked, demonstrating to his 240 million Twitter followers that the right side of his face remained motionless.
However, he also stated that he is trying everything he can to return to normalcy.
In addition to facial exercises, he is taking time to rest and relax so that he may return to his full potential and accomplish what he was created to do.
Fans have expressed their love and concern for Justin after his video went viral on Instagram, and have prayed for his quick recovery. He was scheduled to perform in Washington, D.C., and Toronto earlier this week, with shows in New York and Los Angeles planned in the coming weeks.
