Sia Reveals She Suffers From A Neurological Disorder

Australian pop star Sia has revealed that she suffers from a disease that gives her chronic pain.

The singer tweeted she has a neurological disease and is "suffering with chronic pain" due to Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

According to the website, WebMD, EDS, also called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, has the effect of weakening the tissue of the body which manifests itself in compromised joints, decreasing the strength of blood vessels, and also leading to thinning skin.

She said in 2013: "I got seriously addicted to Vicodin and Oxycodone, and I was always a drinker but I didn't know I was an alcoholic".

Sia later told fans she also suffers from a neurological disease, and thyroid problems, among other things.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a hereditary condition in which the connective tissue is less firm. "Pain is demoralizing, and you're not alone". "Life is fucking hard". The notoriously private singer, who often wears wigs which cover her face on stage, tweeted on Friday, "I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going". Symptoms can include an increased range of joint movement (joint hypermobility), stretchy skin and fragile skin that breaks or bruises easily.

"If you'd like more information it's neuralgia caused by a routine surgery three years ago". "I'm also taking time off to do intensive therapy on Complex PTSD". Plenty of people suffering more than me. "I was really unhappy about being an artist and I was getting sicker and sicker".

The health and wellness organization claims fibromyalgia, however, can be treated with extensive management techniques, including stress management, lifestyle changes, as well as medications.
