Justin Bieber Says He Has Facial Paralysis Due To Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Justin Bieber announced Friday that he is taking a break from performing because he is suffering from facial paralysis due to Ramsay Hunt syndrome on one side of his face.

Bibber said in a video posted on his verified Instagram account that he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which has left him unable to move half of his face and unable to perform on stage

“It is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis,” he said in the video. “As you can see this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face; this nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.”

“This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but, obviously, my body’s telling me I’ve got to slow down,” he said. “I hope you guys understand. I’ll be using this time to just rest and relax and get back to a hundred percent so that I can do what I was born to do.”

Many Justin Biber Fans are heartbroken hearing this news. In fact, many several tweets are made by fans to Justin Bieber to take care of his health and they will support him during these difficult times. 

The same virus that causes chickenpox causes Ramsay Hunt syndrome. The virus remains in your nerves even after the chickenpox has healed. It may reactivate years later. When this happens, it can have an impact on your facial nerves.
