Pop music's superstar Justin Bieber reveals that he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome. Because of his illness, he has full paralysis on one side of his face. Despite the setback, Bieber is steadfast in his trust in God as he encourages fans to pray for him.
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is an infection of a facial nerve. It is a neurological disorder in which the Varicella zoster virus infects specific nerves in the head.
"I wanted to update you guys on what's been going on," Bieber began his message. "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."
"I'm gonna get better," he assured his followers. "I'm doing all these facial exercises to get my face back to normal and it will go back to normal. It's just time, and we don't know how much time it's gonna be. But it's gonna be OK, I hope. I trust God. I trust that this is all gonna ... it's all for a reason, I'm not sure what that is right now."
"But in the meantime, I'm gonna rest, and I love you guys," he concluded. "Peace."
As a result, Bieber has postponed some tour dates.
