Justin Beiber opens up about his battle with an infectious disease Lyme disease

Canadian singer Justin Bieber has revealed he has been battling Lyme disease.

The 25-year-old hitmaker revealed on Instagram on Wednesday (08.01.20) that he has been suffering from the infectious disease which is spread by ticks and said he would be explaining his battle further in his upcoming YouTube documentary series, ‘Justin Bieber: Seasons’.

Justin also claimed to have fought off “a serious case of chronic mono”, and said he was working hard to “overcome” his ailments.

Sharing a screenshot of a story posted by TMZ that broke the news about his Lyme disease diagnosis, he wrote: “While a lot of people kept saying Justin Bieber looks like s**t, on meth etc. they failed to realize I’ve been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health. These things will be explained further in a docu-series I’m putting on YouTube shortly.. you can learn all that I’ve been battling and OVERCOMING!! It’s been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever NO CAP.”

In the 10-part documentary series – which premieres on January 27 – the ‘Love Yourself’ singer will talk about the symptoms he endured in 2019, which he says went undiagnosed until late last year.

According to the report by TMZ, Justin battled extreme depression because he was suffering and no one knew what was wrong with him.

The publication also reports that before Justin was diagnosed, he was given medicine that caused his skin to break out, which has since cleared up.

The ‘Sorry’ hitmaker is now reportedly on proper medicine and says he is physically and mentally ready for his upcoming album release and tour.

Fever, chills, body aches, swollen lymph nodes, neck stiffness, shortness of breath, headache, fatigue and a rash are all typical symptoms of Lyme disease.

When you get bit by a tick, you will typically see a small red bump that may look like a mosquito bite. But three to 30 days later, if a rash shows up and expands from that red area and looks a little like a bull’s-eye, that’s a sign you may have Lyme disease.

Left untreated, the infection can spread to the joints, heart and nervous system, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This can lead to joint pain and swelling.

After several weeks to months, patients may also experience swelling of the membranes surrounding the brain, temporary paralysis of one side of the face and “brain fog”: forgetfulness or confusion.
