Justin Bieber posted a video to Instagram to let his fans know that he has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome and that half of his face is paralyzed.
“Hi everyone. Justine here. I wanted to update you guys on what’s going on. Obviously as you can probably see from my face I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome and it’s from this virus , which is attacking the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused paralysis of my face,” he said in the video.
Bieber blinked, but only one eye blinked.
“As you can see, that eye doesn’t blink. I can’t smile with that side of my face, that nostril doesn’t move, so that side of my face is completely paralyzed,” he said.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs “when an outbreak of shingles 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,” says the Mayo Clinic.
“I’m just not physically able to do them,” he continued. “This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish that wasn’t the case but obviously my body is telling me to slow down and I hope you understand that and I will use this time to rest and relax and get back to 100%, so I can do what I was born to do.”
People who have had chickenpox are most likely to get the disease.
