Celine Dion’s current world tour has been called off owing to health reasons, it was reported today.

In December of last year, the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer revealed she has Stiff Person Syndrome, prompting the cancellation of several shows in Las Vegas.

According to the Genetic and Rare Disease Information Center, this debilitating neurological disorder affects the brain and spinal cord, causing severe and even continual muscle spasms.

As a result of this illness, people supposedly become lifeless statues.

Dion sent a message on Instagram explaining her diagnosis: “Hello everyone, I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get out to you. I can’t wait to be standing on stage with you guys and chatting with you in person; I miss you all so much.

I was never quite ready to say anything before, but now that I am, I will say it all.

When asked about his health, he said, “I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face my challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.”

She elaborated, “Recently, I was diagnosed with the stiff-person syndrome, a very rare neurological disorder that affects only one in a million people.”

“While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know that it’s what’s been causing all the spasms I’ve been having.”

Fans have been speculating about the rare disease prior to the announcement.

Thankfully, Dr. Scott Newsome cleared everything up, explaining that the rarity of Stiff Person Syndrome means that a diagnosis may not be made for years.

“It’s a devastating disease,” he said. Because of its extreme rarity, the early stages of this disease often present as vague symptoms that are difficult to diagnose. From the first signs of illness to a definitive diagnosis, the average patient waits around seven years.

To quote one doctor: “It’s really when people start having more disability that comes to the doctor’s attention.”

Extreme muscle stiffness, rigidity, and painful spasms are some of the primary signs of SPS, as detailed by Doctor Newsome.

They experience horrible spasms in any muscle in the body and will appear to clinic with a rigid axial torso and muscles, tightness in the legs, and so on. The discomfort is severe,” the doctor remarked.

The doctor then remarked, “It seems to be adults.” A large percentage of the population is female and middle-aged or older.

“From the core immunological dysregulation that’s happening, we are a little bit behind the game in terms of understanding what’s going on in patients,” said the doctor, who was employed by Johns Hopkins’ department of neurology at the time of the interview.

Disabilities in SPS can be attributed to “this overstimulation that occurs.”

He explained that immunosuppressant drugs are used to treat the condition, while other treatments, such as botox, are utilized to alleviate the spasticity and tightness associated with SPS.
