Halsey is giving fans an update on their health after revealing they spent much of April “in and out” of the hospital.
Halsey posted videos on Tuesday via Instagram Stories, saying, “Obviously, my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth.”
“I started getting really, really, really, sick… I was hospitalized for anaphylaxis, a few times, and I had some other stuff going on.”
Halsey, who uses “she/they” pronouns, revealed that they’ve also been diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, MCAS, and POTS.
Mast cell activation syndrome causes the immune system to inappropriately activate mast cells, causing them to release too many mediators, resulting in severe allergic reactions that affect several body systems, according to Medical News Today.
Finally, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is characterized by an increased heart rate, drop in blood pressure, and dizziness upon standing.
Halsey, 27, explained, “I’ve been looking for answers to the root cause of some of these things, which may be an autoimmune disease. And I know I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially having endometriosis.”
“I don’t want anybody to be worrying. I’m on a treatment plan right now,” they assured fans, adding that they’re still in rehearsals for the upcoming “Love and Power” Tour.
“I’m really excited and I’m really confident that I’ll be able to do it in a way that’s healthy, where I can perform my best for all of you.”
