Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Explained: What’s the Matter with Justin Bieber?

Bieber with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome

Justin Bieber has given fans cause for major concern.

Late last week, the singer announced that he was postponing his tour and taking a break from his career in general — because he’s been diagnosed with something called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.

Said Bieber in a disturving Instagram post:

“Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.”

He continued at the time:

“As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile with this side of my face, this nostril will not move, so there is full paralysis in this side of my face.”

The two-time Grammy winner went on to address his recently postponed concerts, saying he’s “physically, obviously not capable of doing them.”

He proceeded to ask fans for prayers and confirm that this condition is potentially a very big deal.

“This is pretty serious as you can see,” said Bieber.

“I wish this wasn’t the case but obviously, my body is telling me I got to slow down.

“I hope you guys understand.

“I’ll be using this time to rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so that I can do what I was born to do.”

In response, many social media users left comments of shock and support.

Others, meanwhile, were left to wonder about Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.

What, exactly, is it?

What might the future hold for Bieber?

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that occurs when the varicella-zoster virus infects a nerve in the head near the inner ear.

It’s often the result of one having chicken pox as a child or shingles as an adult, as the virus can lay dormant in the body for many years.
