SIA Confesses She is Suffering from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
On Friday , the musical artist Sia opens c about health and living with chronic pain.
"Hey, I'm suffering with chronic pain, a neurological disease, Ehlers-Danlos and I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going," she says.
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome “ is a group of disorders that affect connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels, and many other organs and tissues.” A symptom of the disorder is hypermobility which is attributed to chronic pain that Sia referenced in her post.
Although Sia is more of a private person ( she used to perform and go out in public with a massive blond wig and fringe), her message proved that even though she lives a glamorous lifestyle as a musician , she’s still human and goes through the same things other people go through as well.
We hope that Sia will find the right help to manage her pain, and it’s safe to say her fans will support her each step of the way.
