It has been nine months since Justin Bieber first revealed that he was dealing with facial paralysis, and finally, the pop sensation has opened up about his current medical condition.
The singer took to Instagram to update his fans on how he’s been managing the condition, which he revealed in a Rolling Stone interview back in February of this year. At the time he stated that he was experiencing symptoms of Lyme disease, a bacterial infection commonly transmitted to humans through tick bites.
Bieber’s update shows the star standing outside his house, looking at the camera and saying, “It’s been a minute since I’ve given you guys an update on my health, so here it is. I’m doing so much better, my symptoms have gone down significantly, thanks for asking.”
Bieber went on to express his gratitude for his fans’ support throughout his journey of overcoming the illness. He also gave a shout-out to his wife, Hailey Bieber, who he said has been there for him every step of the way.
“I just want to thank my wife for being an amazing support system for me, she’s been my rock through all of this,” Bieber added.
Facial paralysis is a condition that can be caused by a variety of factors, including a stroke, Bell’s palsy, or a viral infection. Bieber has not revealed the exact cause of his condition, but said in the Rolling Stone interview that he was receiving treatment and was confident that he would recover.
Since his diagnosis became public, Bieber has been vocal about his journey to recovery and has used his platform to raise awareness about Lyme disease. He has also shared with his followers the importance of taking care of one’s mental and physical health.
While Bieber’s medical journey has not been easy, his recent update shows that he has remained positive and focused on his recovery. It’s clear that he won’t let his condition stop him from doing what he loves and being there for his fans.
Justin Bieber’s honesty and transparency about his health struggles have inspired many, and I hope his update on his condition encourages anyone going through a health issue to lean on their loved ones and keep fighting. We wish Justin all the best on his journey to full recovery.
