Last December, the world-famous Canadian singer Celine Dion was diagnosed with a severe neurological disease - muscle stiffness syndrome. There are no medications that could completely overcome the disease, so the relatives of the 55-year-old star are hoping for a miracle.
This was revealed by the artist's sister in an interview with Hello! Claudette Dion shared that the singer suffers from constant muscle spasms.
"It's a disease we know very little about. She has spasms that can't be controlled. You know how you wake up in the middle of the night because of cramps in your leg or calf? It's like that, only she has these cramps in all her muscles. There's not much we can do to support her, to ease her pain. We are praying for a miracle," Claudette shared.
She assured that her star sister is very strong and ready to fight, but it is not easy right now due to the lack of necessary medication.
"We are crossing our fingers that researchers will find a cure for this terrible disease.... She is doing everything to get well. She is a strong woman," added the iconic performer's sister.
Celine Dion has been making extremely rare public appearances since her illness became known. She canceled her big tour with the tour and does not often show up on social media.
"Unfortunately, the cramps affect all aspects of my everyday life. It happens when I walk, or when I try to use my vocal cords the way I'm used to. I've been struggling with health issues for a long time. And it's been very hard for me to confront these challenges and talk about everything that I have to deal with," the singer revealed in December 2022 when announcing her illness to fans.
Note that the Johns Hopkins University website in the United States reports that stiffness syndrome occurs in one or two people per million. And when a patient is diagnosed with the disease, they and their family have more questions than answers because the disease is under-researched and there are still no guidelines for its treatment.
As wrote OBOZREVATEL, earlier unconscious found singer Madonna, who was then urgently hospitalized in intensive care. Insiders later said that she was bedridden, experiencing constant feelings of nausea and weakness. They added that "the disease continues to ravage the body" of the star.
