A little over a week after Lady Gaga canceled a last minute show in Montreal, the singer “Born This Way” announced that she would postpone the rest of her tour for health reasons.
In a statement posted on the Live Nation website, the company revealed that the European tour of Joanne de Gaga’s world tour had been postponed until early 2018 because of Gaga’s “severe physical pain that affected his ability to perform”. Gaga, who suffers from fibromyalgia, “is being cared for by expert health professionals who have recommended deferral earlier in the day,” the statement said.
In an emotional publication on Instagram, Gaga explained that her chronic pain was out of control and that she needed to take the time to regain strength. Explaining that she is “always honest” about her “physical and mental health problems,” Gaga said that when she reconciles, she “would tell my story more deeply”, raise public awareness and advocate for more. research on fibromyalgia.
“I am a fighter,” wrote Gaga in his message. “… I’m looking forward to returning to tour soon, but I have to be with my doctor right now so I can be strong and perform well for you all for the next 60 years or so.”
Gaga talks about the effects of her fibromyalgia, a chronic condition that can cause extreme musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and insomnia, in the new trailer for her Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two . It is estimated that five million Americans aged 18 or older – 80 to 90% of whom are women – have fibromyalgia. We rarely talk about the disease, given the number of people who treat it. Because of its status as an “invisible disease” that others can not see, patients often suffer in silence or even ignore that they have the disease.
People with pain can vary from day to day, according to Daily Health . A woman, Amy Mullholand, said at the point of sale that she could get up one day to wash the dishes, while the other would cry because of the pain accumulated during the time it took to fry an egg. In an article on the blog [ Counting My Spoons ], (http://countingmyspoons.com/2011/06/whats-fibromyalgia-feel-like/) Julie Ryan, with fibromyalgia, described the pain as being similar to the influenza. but all the time. She also wrote that it’s as if you were wearing a heavy coat or lead boots, or if you did a very intense workout the day before – every day.
In addition, fibromyalgia can lead to constant fatigue (often due to sleep disturbed by pain) and “foggy”, which can make it difficult to memorize or focus on important tasks. The disease often coexists with irritable bowel syndrome, chronic migraines, joint disorders and other chronic conditions.
Researchers still do not know why fibromyalgia occurs, but according to the Mayo Clinic, genetics, physical or emotional trauma, and infections can all be thought to contribute to its development. The researchers also believe that patients have abnormally high levels of chemicals in the brain that signal pain, which means they respond excessively to pain signals. Some medications and therapies can relieve the pain associated with fibromyalgia, but for now, there is no cure, there are only management techniques.
