Canceling all the recent shows on his latest your Justin Bieber took an Instagram to tell his fans that he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which is causing him partial facial paralysis. Fans poured their love and good wishes on his social media accounts.
Justin said “I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on,” Bieber began his message. “Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome. And it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.”
He address all the people who were being frustrated with all cancellations done by him of the various shows and he thanked all his fans for being patient and said he’s been doing facial exercises to help. He said he doesn’t know how long it will take for him to recover, but earlier this week, it was announced that three of his upcoming performances were postponed.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) is a rare neurological disorder characterized by paralysis of the facial nerve (facial palsy) and a rash affecting the ear or mouth. Ear abnormalities such as ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and hearing loss may also be present. Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox in children and shingles (herpes zoster) in adults. In cases of Ramsay Hunt syndrome, the previously inactive (dormant) varicella-zoster virus is reactivated and spreads to affect the facial nerve.
Fans and the well-wishers are praying for the singer and expect his speedy recovery.
