Legendary singer, Celine Dion has been diagnosed with an incurable disease called, Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS). The disease causes her muscles to tense uncontrollably, according to a report by Dailymail. The condition ultimately leaves sufferers as 'human statues' as it progressively locks the body into rigid positions, ultimately leaving people unable to walk or talk.  While there is no cure for the condition, there are treatments to slow down the progression, with Celine revealing she is doing all she can to minimise symptoms.
 
The 54-year-old singer addressed her fans in a tearful Instagram post on Thursday as she revealed it has forced her to cancel her European tour.   Heartbreaking: Celine Dion has been diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), which causes her muscles to tense uncontrollably
 
She penned: 'Hello everyone, im sorry it's taken me so long to reach out to you. I miss you all so much and can’t wait to be on stage talking to you in person. As you know I’ve always been an open book and I wasn’t ready to say anything before but im ready now 'I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time and its been really difficult for me to face my challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through
'
Recently I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called the stiff person syndrome which affects 1 in a million people While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all the spasms I’ve been havingUnfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal chords to sing the way im used to

It hurts me to tell you today that this means I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February I have a great team of doctors working alongside me to help me get better and my precious children who are supporting me and giving me help Im working hard with my sports medicine therapist every day to build bac my strength and my ability to perform again but I have to admit it’s been a struggle

All I know is singing it’s what I’ve done all my life and its what I love to do the most I miss you so much I miss seeing all of you being on the stage performing for you I always give 100 percent when I do my show but my condition is now allowing me to give you that right now For me to reach you again i have no choice but to concentrate on my health at this moment and I have hope that im on the road to recovery

This is my focus and im doing everything I can to recuperate I want to thank you so much for your wishes and love and support on my social media. This means a lot to me. Take care of yourselves. Be well. I love you guys so much and I really hope I can see you again real soon.'

 
Celine first hinted at her health woes in January when she cancelled the North American dates of her Courage world tour from March 9 to April 22.   She was forced to scrap the shows by 'severe and persistent muscle spasms,' according to a press release posted to her website.
 
The announcement came three months after she had to cancel the start of her Las Vegas comeback residency over the same health issue.
 
 A statement on her website said that Celine 'recently has been treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing, and her recovery is taking longer than she hoped,' per her website. 'Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.'
 
She herself said: 'I was really hoping that I’d be good to go by now, but I suppose I just have to be more patient and follow the regimen that my doctors are prescribing. The superstar singer added: 'There's a lot of organizing and preparation that goes into our shows, and so we have to make decisions today which will affect the plans two months down the road. I’ll be so glad to get back to full health, as well as all of us getting past this pandemic, and I can’t wait to be back on stage again.'
 
She continued: 'Meanwhile, I’ve been very touched by all the words of encouragement that everyone’s been sending to me on social media. I feel your love and support and it means the world to me.' During the past couple of decades Celine became known as 'Queen Of Las Vegas' because of her enormously successful residencies there. After retiring her famous Caesars Palace residency in 2019, she was coaxed back to Sin City to perform at the new Resorts World on the Strip.
