Justin Bieber Ramsay Hunt syndrome symptoms

Justin Bieber said he’s “frustrated” because his Ramsay Hunt syndrome symptoms make it “harder to eat.” 

The “Peaches” singer shared more details about his condition in an Instagram Story post on Friday. Earlier that day, Bieber said he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome and revealed that half of his face is temporarily paralyzed. 

“Been getting progressively harder to eat,” Bieber, 28, wrote, “which has been extremely frustrating. Please pray for me.” 

Representatives for Bieber did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment. 

Bieber first broke the news of his condition on Friday in an almost three-minute Instagram video after canceling two shows in Toronto and one in Washington D.C. earlier this week. Bieber showed fans his symptoms in the video. 

“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,” Bieber said in the video.

He added: “This is pretty serious. I wish this wasn’t the case, but obviously, my body’s telling me I have to slow down. I’m going to get better. 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 that’s going to be, but it’s going to be OK, and I have hope.” 

Bieber has been vocal about his health issues, including in his 2020 docuseries titled “Seasons”, when he discussed having Lyme disease, chronic anxiety, and the Epstein-Barr virus. 

“It might not seem hard for some people to just get out of bed in the morning, but it’s been really hard for me to just get out of my bed,” Bieber said.

What Experts Says About Justin Bieber Ramsay Hunt syndrome symptoms

According to the Mayo Clinic, facial paralysis is a symptom of Ramsay Hunt disease, which occurs when a virus — called varicella zoster — infects the facial nerve. 

The symptoms usually resolve after treatment with medications, but the paralysis can be permanent, according to the Mayo Clinic. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, other symptoms include:

  • Hearing loss.
  • Ringing in the ears.
  • A change in taste perception or loss of taste.
  • Ear pain.

The Rare Disease Database added that an estimated five out of every 100,000 people are affected yearly by Ramsay Hunt syndrome. 

According to the CDC, the virus is typically associated with chickenpox but can also cause shingles, leading to painful rashes. Children are now vaccinated for chickenpox, reducing the chances of becoming infected, according to the CDC.
