Singer-songwriter Sia reveals she has chronic pain disease

Singer-songwriter Sia reveals she has chronic pain disease”

The 43-year-old "Chandelier" singer is not letting this bring her down though and she's sending hope to fans who also may be dealing with similar issues right now.

Sia has revealed she is suffering from a neurological disease.

The singer-songwriter Sia Furler has disclosed that she has the chronic pain disease Ehlers-Danos syndrome, and told others suffering from pain "you're not alone".

While Ehlers-Danlos syndromes can manifest neurologically in symptoms like headaches, fatigue and muscle weakness, it isn't considered a neurological disease, and Sia didn't specify what neurological disease or symptom she was suffering from. Life is f-ing hard.

'I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going. "Pain is demoralizing, and you're not alone".

EDS is a group of rare inherited conditions that affect connective tissue, with symptoms including an increased range of joint movement, stretchy skin or fragile skin that breaks or bruises easily.

Worldwide, the syndrome is believed to effect one in every 5,000 people. Life is fucking hard.

She mentioned in 2013: 'I got seriously addicted to Vicodin and Oxycodone, and I was always a drinker but I didn't know I used to be an alcoholic.

Nevertheless, after she was identified with hyperthyroid illness, Sia managed to give up tablets and booze and final 12 months, she celebrated eight years of sobriety. I used to be actually sad, being an artist, and I used to be getting sicker and sicker'.

Followers flocked to Sia's social media pages to thank her for her candor and offer words of support.
