In a shocking tweet, Singer Sia has revealed that she is suffering from a neurological disease - Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. The famous Australian singer took to Twitter to share her health issues with her followers.
"Hey, I'm suffering with chronic pain, a neurological disease, ehlers-danlos and I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going. Pain is demoralizing, and you're not alone," Sia tweeted.
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of disorders that weaken connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels, and many other organs and tissues. Defects in connective tissues cause the signs and symptoms of these conditions, which range from mildly loose joints to life-threatening complications. They are generally characterized by joint hypermobility (joints that stretch further than normal), skin hyperextensibility (skin that can be stretched further than normal), and tissue fragility. The rare disorder affects only 1 in 5,000 individuals worldwide. Many people with the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes have soft, velvety skin that is highly stretchy and fragile. Affected individuals tend to bruise easily, and some types of condition also cause abnormal scarring.
The followers of Sia penned their heartiest messages and supported the singer.

Thank you for sharing. I know so many people in pain. They're suffering being abandoned by physicians, or shamed by pharmacists. It's inhumane. @rollinslynda was in court for sentencing of Dr Joel Smithers to 40 years in prison. A good doctor who tried to help, now in prison— Dee (@Deeenst) October 5, 2019
