Canadian singer Celine Dion has been diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome.

Celine Dion has revealed that she was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), a rare and progressive neurological disorder. The 54-year-old singer shared an emotional Instagram video about living with a condition that makes her muscles spasm uncontrollably and affects “every aspect” of her day-to-day life.

"I've been dealing with problems with my health for a long time," said Dion.

“Recently I've been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called the stiff person syndrome which affects something like one in a million people.

“While we're still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what's been causing all of the spasms I've been having,” she said.
