Jessie J is on the mend after experiencing a scary incident on Christmas Eve.
More details below…
The singer took to Instagram to reveal that she was sent to the hospital on Christmas Eve, where she was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease – an inner-ear condition that can cause vertigo – that left her deaf an unable to walk properly.
Taking to her Instagram stories, she said:
“I woke up and felt like I was completely deaf in my right ear, couldn’t walk in a straight line. Basically I got told I had Meniere’s syndrome.”
“It could be way worse, it is what it is. I’m super grateful for my health. It just threw me off. On Christmas Eve I was in the ear hospital going, ‘What is going on?’ But I’m glad I went early and they worked out what it was real quick and I got put on the right medicine, so I feel a lot better today.”
In another post, the ‘Bang Bang’ singer described her experience with the condition, saying:
“When I sing loud, it sounds like there’s someone trying to run out of my ear… I am now watching ‘Queen’s Gambit’ with my finger in my ear. I’ve done the first episode four times because I [have] zero focus and my ear sounds like someone crawled in and turned a hairdryer on.”
Still, she remained positive, saying:
“Sending LOVE to everyone who needs it, is or isn’t alone. We all need some extra love. This Christmas might be a little off. BUT one in a lifetime isn’t bad when some people haven’t had one good one in their lifetime. Think about what you do have this week, not what you don’t.”
