Veteran Canadian singer, Celine Dion has shared details about her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome and its impact on her well-being.

During an interview with NBC News, the 56-year-old artiste revealed that she often felt as if she were “being strangled.”

She also mentioned that she frequently experiences severe cramps and has even fractured some ribs.

“It’s like somebody is strangling you. It’s like somebody is pushing your larynx/pharynx. It was like talking like that, and you cannot go high or lower,” she said.

It feels like, if I point my feet, they will stay in (that position). Or, if I cook – because I love to cook – my fingers, my hands, will get in position … It’s cramping but it’s like in a position where you cannot unlock them.

“I have broken ribs at one point because sometimes when its very severe, it can break.”

Recall that Celine Dion was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare neurological condition, in 2022.

Initially, the singer attempted to manage the symptoms on her own before coming to terms with the significant changes it brought to her life.

She stated that she is now focused on learning to live with and manage the condition, emphasizing that she refuses to let it define her.
