Since 2017, Halsey, 27, has been open about her struggle with endometriosis. The singer revealed she has been “in and out” of the hospital in recent weeks and is sharing answers with her fans about her health.
In April, Halsey said she might be going “MIA” as she deals with “difficult circumstances” regarding her health.
On May 10, she went to Instagram to give her fans an update.
“Obviously, my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth,” Halsey said on Instagram Stories. “I started getting really, really, really, sick… I was hospitalized for anaphylaxis a few times, and I had some other stuff going on.”
“Basically, after seeing a hundred thousand doctors,” she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, mast-cell activation syndrome, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
The National Organization for Rare Diseases explains that Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a hereditary disorder that affects the skin, joints, and blood vessel walls. Mast-cell activation syndrome creates repeated experiences of anaphylaxis, and POTS is a blood circulation disorder.
“I’ve been looking for answers to the root cause of some of these things, which may be an autoimmune disease. And I know I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially having endometriosis.”
Halsey comforted her fans, saying, “I don’t want anybody to be worrying. I’m on a treatment plan right now,”
She also added that she is still rehearsing for her upcoming Love and Power Tour. “I’m really excited and I’m really confident that I’ll be able to do it in a way that’s healthy where I can perform my best for all of you.”
