Celine Dion announced on her Instagram account that she has a rare neurological disease.
The 54-year-old Canadian hit singer announced he has solid person syndrome, an immune system disease that causes muscles to contract uncontrollably.
Dion, who has 5.2 million followers, said the illness made it difficult for her to walk and sing, and she will not be able to do UK and European tours planned for next year.
“I’ve had health issues for a long time. It’s been hard for me to face these challenges and describe what I’ve been through,” Dion said in the video message.
“Even though we’re still in the learning stages of this rare disease, we know it’s causing the muscle spasms I’m experiencing,” said an emotional Dion, explaining that his disease is one in a million. .”
The famous singer said the conditions affect all areas of her life and cause problems when using her vocal cords, “It prevents me from singing like I used to”.
Celine Dion, who won an Oscar for best song for her song “My Heart Will Go On” from the Titanic soundtrack, announced in 2014 that she was putting her career on hold indefinitely, stating that her husband René Angell was battling cancer.
Returning to the stage in 2016, Dion took a break from performing after the deaths of his wife and brother Daniel Dion.
Dion released the album Courage in 2019.
What is Solid Person Syndrome?
This rare and little-known disease is called SPS by its English abbreviation.
The National Institute for Neurological Disorders defines the disease as “rolling stiffness of muscles in the trunk and limbs, hypersensitivity to stimuli such as sound, touch, and sadness, and muscle spasms caused by these.”
Also, it is stated that abnormal postures are encountered in the form of straining and stiffening of the back.
According to the institute, people with the disease experience disability due to walking and mobility difficulties, and a fear of leaving the house for fear that triggers such as street noise and horn sounds will cause seizures and falls.
Lacking the reflexes of normal people, falls by these people can cause serious injuries.
Although there is no definitive cure for SPS, medications such as anti-anxiety medications and muscle relaxants can slow the progression and symptoms of the disease.
