Celine Dion feels muscle stiffness not only in her larynx but also in her arms, legs, spine, and other parts of her body. This makes it difficult for her to cook and walk.

"I feel that if I bend my legs, they stay in that position, or when I cook, my fingers and my hands get into a certain position. My legs... they cramp up. At one point I had broken ribs because sometimes when the disease is very severe, it can break several ribs," Dion admitted.
