Lady Gaga is suffering from this Chronic illness

Lady Gaga, Disease, Singer

The 31-year-old singer’s health status has been one of the reasons she has decided to “pause” for an indefinite period of her career by the end of the year.

The American singer Lady Gaga revealed this week that she suffers from a chronic disease known as fibromyalgia. The fight of the artist against this disease, which faces five years ago, will be part of a documentary that will debut Netflix on September 22.

“In the documentary, the disease, and the chronic pain I deal with is Fibromyalgia. I want to be able to help raise awareness and connect with the people who have it,” the artist said Tuesday on her Twitter account.

The autobiographical film titled “Gaga: Five Foot Two” – name that refers to the height of the artists: “five feet two inches” (156 centimeters) – was first screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, which takes place from 7 to 17 September.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle aches and fatigue. According to the US National Institute of Arthritis and Skin Diseases, people who experience it experience pain and tenderness throughout the body, insomnia, morning stiffness, numbness in hands and feet, and difficulty concentrating. It may be accompanied by psychiatric disorders, so some experts consider it a product of somatization.

Its causes are unknown but may be related to genetic factors, recurrent injuries, stressful and traumatic events and other diseases.

It is often difficult to cure. Your treatment includes physical therapy and is aimed at eliminating your symptoms. In this regard, Lady Gaga herself revealed: “I thought ice helped fibromyalgia. I was wrong and I made it worse. Warm/warm is better.”

The 31-year-old singer’s health status has been one of the reasons she has decided to “pause” for an indefinite period of her career by the end of the year. Last week, Gaga had to cancel a concert in Montreal (Canada) and its presentation at the opening of the Rock festival in Rio, this Friday in Brazil. “I’m looking forward to thinking, stopping for a while and healing,” he told a news conference.
