Justin Bieber takes to Instagram to ask fans to send prayers his way as she recovers from a rare and serious illness.
The Grammy winner made a video announcement revealing he has been diagnosed withh Ramsay Hunt syndrome leaving him with partial facial paralysis.
Because of this syndrome, he postponed three shows of his Justice World Tour in 2022 earlier this week. While announcing his diagnosis, the “Peaches” singer made it clear that there will be more cancellations as he takes time to rest and recover.
“Hello everyone. Justin here. I just wanted to update you on what’s going on,” he said. “Obviously, as you can probably tell from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it’s from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has left my face paralyzed.”
Bieber told fans to “slow down” and said he’s been using facial exercises to get himself back to 100%.
“I’m just physically, obviously incapable of doing them,” he explained. “This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case but obviously my body is telling me to slow down and I hope you guys understand and that I will use this time to rest and relax and get back to 100% so that I can do what I was born to do.”
“I’m going to get better and I’m doing all these facial exercises to get my face back to normal and it’s going to get back to normal, it’s just time. We don’t know how long it’s going to take, but it’s going to be okay and I have hope and I trust on God and I trust that this is all going to happen, it’s all for a reason and I’m not sure what that is now, but in the meantime I’m going to rest. I love you, peace.”
Several of Bieber’s famous friends have left well wishes on his post. Hurt say: “Love you brother, get well soon ️🩹.” Singer Pink Sweats commented, saying “We love you brother, take the time you need ” and Big Sean left a comment that read “Love you brother ✨🤟🏾🙏🏾.”
So what exactly is Ramsay Hunt syndrome? According to the Mayo Clinic, it occurs when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears. In addition to the painful rash of shingles, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Prompt treatment of Ramsay Hunt syndrome can reduce the risk of complications, including permanent muscle weakness and facial deafness.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time Justin has been scared of health issues this year. His wife, Hailey Baldwin Bieber, was hospitalized in March after suffering a mini-stroke.
She was later diagnosed with a patent foramen ovale, or PFO, a small opening in the heart that didn’t close as it should after birth, which doctors said caused the blood clot to travel from her heart to her brain and lead to her. mini stroke. She went through a procedure to close the PFO.
We wish Justin Bieber the best of luck on his healing journey.
