Celine Dion’s sister shared with fans that she was suffering from seizures

By Fabiano Moreno |


After canceling her tour dates, Celine Dion sister shared with fans that she was suffering from seizures that affected “every aspect of my life,” making it difficult for her to walk and preventing her from using her vocal cords properly.

Her sister Claudette Dion revealed that she now “loses control of her muscles”. “What hurts me is the fact that he is always disciplined. He always works hard,” he said in a French interview with Canada’s 7 Jour.

Last May, Celine Dion was forced to cancel the remaining concerts on her world tour.

At the time, he said: “It’s unfair and painful to keep postponing performances, but it’s better to cancel everything until you’re actually ready to take the stage again.”

His sister said it’s still their dream to return to the stage, but it’s unclear what skills he will be capable of.

“The vocal cords are muscles and the heart is also a muscle. “That’s what captivated me,” he said.

Because the disease is so rare, it has not been studied much and some have found it “frustrating,” he said. However, he said that the singer’s fans supported him and that he received many messages and gifts.

What is stiff man syndrome?

Stiff person syndrome (SPS) is a rare neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

The institute states on its website that SPS is characterized by “increased sensitivity to stimuli such as noise, touch and emotional stress, which can cause various muscle stiffness and muscle spasms in the trunk and extremities”.

“Abnormal posture, often slouching and rigid, is a hallmark of this disorder,” he said.

“People with SPS may become so disabled that they cannot walk or move, or they may be afraid to leave the house because street noises, such as car horns, can trigger seizures and falls.”

The disease affects twice as many women as men, and “scientists still don’t understand what causes SPS, but research suggests that SPS is the result of a faulty autoimmune response in the brain and spinal cord.”

It really is a shame that Celine Dion is going through this, as she is certainly one of the most remarkable voices to have passed through the world.

All we can do is wish her good things and positive energy so she can recover.
