Justin Bieber took to Instagram to explain the “pretty serious virus” that has paralyzed half of his face and caused shows in Canada and the US to be canceled earlier this week.
In two and a half minutes videohe explained and showed that he suffers from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare virus that affects the nerves in the face and can cause facial paralysis.
As if to prove the correctness of his condition, he shows very clearly in the video: “As you can see, this eye does not blink. I cannot smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move. So there is complete paralysis on the side of my face.” Look above.

“So for those frustrated with my cancellations of the following shows, I’m just physically unable to do them. This is pretty serious. As you can see.”
In general, however, he was optimistic and took a positive attitude that he will undergo therapy and exercises to overcome his ailment and “bring my face back to where it should be”.
He said: “It will go back to normal. [It will take] time, and we don’t know how much time that will be, but it’ll be okay. And I have hope, and I trust in God, and I trust that all this has a reason. I’m not sure what that is now. But in the meantime, I’m going to rest.”

Possibly due to negative reactions to the vague reasoning given earlier this week for the show’s postponement, it sadly appears that Bieber has felt the need to show that he is actually sick.
People who attended Bieber’s concert in New York last week said: Variety that the singer put on a solid show and showed no symptoms similar to what is written in the Instagram post, although he was a bit calmer than usual.
According to the Mayo Clinic website, Ramsay Hunt syndrome “occurs when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears. In addition to the painful shingles rash, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear.”
It is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox, which remains in the nerves even after the chickenpox is gone and can be reactivated. even years later.
If not treated in time, it can cause permanent hearing damage. Even if treated early, the syndrome can be extremely painful, persist for several months and cause short-term hearing loss.

Bieber’s North American tour was scheduled to include two dates in New York City, among others, before finishing in Los Angeles on July 3, and picking up in August with a spread of dates in Europe and South Africa before heading to Australia and South Africa. New Zealand moved towards the end of the year. Presumably, all that data has now been put on hold.
