Ramsay Hunt Syndrome: Justin Bieber’s face paralyzed

Justin Bieber revealed on Friday that he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a rare condition that has paralyzed half of his face.

Mr. Bieber, the pop singer, said in a video posted to his Instagram account, “It is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.” “You can see that this eye isn’t blinking. On this side of my face, I can’t smile. This nostril is immobile.”

He stated that he will cancel his remaining tour dates because he is “physically, obviously not capable of doing them.”

What Exactly is Ramsay Hunt Syndrome?

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a neurological disorder caused by the varicella zoster virus, which also causes chickenpox in children and shingles in adults. The virus can live in your body for the rest of your life, even after you’ve recovered from chickenpox, and reawaken to irritate and inflame your facial nerves.

“The nerves that run through your face go through pretty narrow, bony canals, and when they get inflamed, they swell and lose their ability to function,” explained Dr. Anna Wald, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

The illness affects both men and women equally and can cause facial paralysis and painful, blistering rashes. It is more formal.
