What did Celine Dion Say About Stiff Person Syndrome?
Dion announced in December 2022 that she had been suffering from a stiff person syndrome diagnosis and would be canceling tour dates as a result.
A very uncommon neurological condition is stiff person syndrome. Muscle stiffness in the chest, arms and legs as well as muscle spasms that may be brought on by sounds, touch or mental discomfort are possible symptoms of the degenerative disorder.
In a video (provided below) that was uploaded to her Instagram page in December 2022, Dion talked openly about being diagnosed with stiff person syndrome.

She also provided an update on her health. She said in a message:
“I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%, Even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again. I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!”
What did Celine Dion’s Sister Say About Her Health?
Céline Dion is still putting her health first despite her struggle with a severe neurological condition. Nearly eight months after the singer revealed she had Stiff-person syndrome, a rare chronic ailment that results in excruciating muscle spasms and stiffness, her sister Claudette provided insight into how her family has come together to support her.
Claudette recently stated in a statement that was translated from French to Le Journal de Montreal:
“When I call and Celine is busy I talk to my sister Linda, who lives with her, who tells me she is working hard, She is studying and learning from the world’s best doctors specialized in this rare disease.”
As Claudette pointed out, Céline’s primary concern is still maintaining her health. She continued:
“I honestly think she just needs to rest, She’s spent all her life above it all, trying to be the biggest and strongest. At some point, your ‘little’ heart and ‘little’ body is speaking to you. It’s important.”
Claudette said that the 55-year-old is committed to her recovery.
“We trust her. It is within her. She has always been very disciplined at everything she’s ever accomplished in her life.”
