Halsey gives a major life and health update.

Singer Halsey is opening up about her recent health diagnosis after previously sharing with her fans and followers that she had spent time in the hospital for ongoing health complications related to endometriosis.

The singer shared a couple of video reels on their social media on Tuesday where she talked about her health issue and mentioned that she knows that the fans are worried about her health and wondering what’s been up. She continued that her health has changed a lot since she got pregnant and gave birth. In the videos shared, Halsey is seen wearing a heart monitor but assuring her fans that she does not want to be worried too much about her because she is getting all the help and treatments needed to get better. 

Halsey went on to say that she had been sick for much of her adult life, but it got worse after she gave birth to Ender Ridley Aydin, whom she shares with screenwriter Alev Aydin, and that she is allergic to practically everything. Halsey mentioned that she was recently hospitalized for anaphylaxis and revealed that she was later diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos disease, Sjogren's syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome after meeting "100,000" doctors.

The singer said that she is still looking for answers for the root cause of these things, but it could be another autoimmune disease as she is aware that she had autoimmune issues most of her life, including endometriosis, which was diagnosed in 2016 and she had surgery to treat the disorder in 2017 and again in late March.

Halsey does not want her fans to be too worried, and she reminded them that her North American tour is going to kick off in just one week and she is on a treatment plan at this time while being in rehearsals. Halsey reminded the fans that she is super excited, thrilled, and confident to be on stage and be able to pull it off, which is why she is taking all the precautions needed for her to be healthy to perform for them. The singer added that preparing for the tour has kept her mind off everything and the thought of being on stage makes her feel healthy.

The singer also updated that she is keeping her body active by doing cardio and everything needed to keep her going. Halsey explained how her upcoming show, ‘Love and Power’, will be highly influenced by the health issues, both logistically and artistically, and added that when they were younger, they simply did not pay much attention to the body and worked insane hours and days in a row, but now she is mature and a mother, she has to worry about her body.

Halsey continued that she feels that her body is rebelling against her and she has a lot of angst and energy in her along with confusion that she wants to get out on stage. She concluded that she is looking forward to building a show that reflects her belief that it could be a cathartic place for everyone who comes along and help them release some tension.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a collection of hereditary illnesses that affect the connective tissues of the body, particularly the skin, joints, and blood vessel walls. Mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) is a disorder in which a patient has recurrent bouts of anaphylactic symptoms such as hives, swelling, low blood pressure, trouble breathing, and severe diarrhea. During those instances, a lot of mast cell mediators are released.

Dry eyes and mouth are symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome, an immune system condition. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is when standing up causes a drop in blood volume, which causes symptoms, in other words when a person stands up after lying down, this syndrome is generally induced
