Celine Dion hopes for quick recovery from Stiff-Person Syndrome

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Céline Dion bravely shared with the world that she was facing an uncertain future after receiving a rare diagnosis back in December 2022.

The French-Canadian icon told her legions of fans around the world that she had been battling something known as Stiff Person Syndrome.

Letting her millions of followers in on her secret health battle after canceling several tour dates, Celine candidly shared all in a moving video posted to her social media channels.

In the video, she explained, “I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.”

“Recently I have been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called the stiff-person syndrome (SPS), which affects something like one in a million people.”

The National Organisation of Rare Diseases explain that Stiff Person Syndrome is “a rare acquired neurological disorder that most often causes progressive muscle stiffness (rigidity) and repeated episodes of painful muscle spasms.”

SPS affects twice as many women as men and can often be misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, psychosomatic illness or anxiety.

There were hopes that the My Heart Will Go On star could have bounced back after making something of a musical comeback with her appearance in Priyanka Chopra’s romcom, Love Again, for which Céline also contributed the soundtrack.

However, the star’s sister has recently shared an update – and any hopes for a full-scale comeback seem unlikely.

One of the Power of Love singer’s sisters, Claudette, spoke about her condition in an interview with the Canadian publication Le Journal de Montréal.

In the interview, she shared that their other sister, Linda, had moved in to live with Celine in her home as they continued to struggle to find anything “that works” against the condition.

“[Celine is] listening to the top researchers in the field of this rare disease as much as possible,” Claudette shared.

“I honestly think that she mostly needs to rest. She always goes above and beyond; she always tries to be the best and top of her game.”

Speaking about Celine’s decision to step away from performing, she continued, “At one point, your heart and your body are trying to tell you something. It’s important to listen to it.”

She went on to suggest that, as of now, any hopes of a big breakthrough are fleeting.

She shared that they had been unable to “find any medicine that works”, but they still believed in the importance of “having hope.”

While fans will no doubt be hoping and praying for whatever is best for Celine, the beloved icon continues to share updates with fans.

On her Instagram last month, she continued a long-held tradition for her LGBTQ+ fans.

Sharing a playlist, she posted, “Love is for everyone, no matter who you are, where you’re from, and who you want to love! Be yourself and be loud! Here it is, as a tradition, Celine’s 2023 Pride playlist!”

She also used her social media to pay tribute to the late Tina Turner.

  2. My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 2 years ago, when he was 49. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Sinemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Sifrol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from Health Care HERBAL CENTRE, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the Health Care HERBAL Parkinson’s disease natural herbal formula. He is now almost 51 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! Visit w w w. healthcareherbalcentre .com

  3. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 52 years old 4 years ago. The Bafiertam did very little to help me. The medical team did even less. My decline was rapid and devastating. It was muscle weakness at first, then my hands and tremors. Last year, a family friend told us about Natural Herbs Centre and their successful MS Ayurveda TREATMENT, we visited their website naturalherbscentre. com and ordered their Multiple Sclerosis Ayurveda protocol, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed my Multiple Sclerosis, most of my symptoms stopped, I’m able to walk and my writing is becoming great, sleep well and exercise regularly. I’m  active now, I can personally vouch for  these remedy but you would probably need to decide what works best for you🧡.
