Justin Bieber gets facial paralysis, shows cancelled

After canceling gigs this week, singer Justin Bieber announced he is suffering from facial paralysis.

In an Instagram video, the 28-year-old said that her illness is caused by a diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

“This eye does not blink, as you can see. On this side of my face, I’m unable to grin… So this side of my face is completely paralyzed “he stated.

According to medical professionals, Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when a shingles epidemic damages the facial nerve between the ears.

Bieber’s Justice World Tour, which began in February, revealed earlier this week that three gigs will be rescheduled.

“It’s from this virus that targets the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and causes my face to be paralyzed,” the musician, who was born in Canada, said in the three-minute video, pointing to the right side of his face.

He pleaded for patience from his followers and stated that he is “physically, obviously, not capable of executing” his next gigs.

He also smiled and blinked, demonstrating to his 240 million Twitter followers that the right half of his face remained still.

“As you can see, this is a terrible situation. I wish this wasn’t the case, but my body is clearly telling me that I need to slow down “he stated “I’m hoping you guys get it. I’m going to use this time to simply rest and relax so that I can get back to doing what I was created to do.”

Bieber went on to say that he’s been performing facial workouts to “get back to normal,” but he doesn’t know how long it will take.

He was scheduled to perform in Washington, D.C., and Toronto earlier this week, with shows in New York and Los Angeles planned in the coming weeks.

“In addition to the painful shingles rash, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can induce facial paralysis and hearing loss in the afflicted ear,” according to the Mayo Clinic in the United States.

The symptoms of Ramsay Hunt syndrome are usually transient, but they might become permanent, according to the Mayo Clinic.

According to the organization, patients’ inability to close one eyelid can cause eye discomfort and poor vision, and it is most frequent in adults over 60 years old.

Hailey Bieber, the singer’s wife, was rushed to the hospital in March with a blood clot in her brain.

She then revealed that she had had a stroke and underwent surgery to fix a hole in her heart.
