After previously alerting fans that they had spent time in the hospital, Halsey is now speaking out about a plethora of new health issues.
The artist, whose pronouns are she/her and they/them, stated in a series of Instagram Story videos released Tuesday, “My health has changed a lot since I was pregnant and gave birth.” They donned a cardiac monitor in the video and stated they didn’t want people to be concerned.
“I started feeling sick.” “I’ve been unwell for much of my adult life, but it got awful (after having birth),” Halsey continued, explaining that she is “allergic to absolutely everything” and has been hospitalized for anaphylaxis.
Before being diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, the singer saw “100,000 doctors” (POTS).
On Sunday, March 27, 2022, Halsey attends the Vanity Fair Oscar Party at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, California.
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a “collection of genetic illnesses that affect your connective tissues – principally your skin, joints, and blood vessel walls,” according to Mayo Clinic. Sjogren’s syndrome is an immune system condition that is frequently accompanied by others and is characterized by dry eyes and mouth.
“And I’m still hunting for answers for some of these items’ core causes,” Halsey remarked.
According to WebMD,
MCAS is a disorder that “causes mast cells to discharge an improper amount of chemicals into your body,” causing allergies and a variety of other symptoms. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, POTS is a condition of the autonomic nervous system, which “regulates systems we don’t consciously control, such as heart rate, blood pressure, perspiration, and body temperature.”
“It might be another autoimmune condition,” she continued, “and I’ve known I’ve had autoimmune issues for much of my life, especially with endometriosis.”
According to Mayo Clinic,
Halsey was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016, a condition in which tissue that lines the inside of the uterus develops outside the uterus. The singer underwent surgery to cure endometriosis in 2017 and again in late March and has since spoken out about a miscarriage six years ago, which they blame on the disorder. Ender Ridley Aydin, her first child with screenwriter Alev Aydin, was born this summer.
“If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power,” the artist’s fourth studio album, was previously billed as a “concept album on the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth.”
Halsey is currently preparing to tour the album and says the theme has grown beyond pregnancy and post-partum to include other health issues: “I have a lot of anguish, a lot of energy, and a lot of confusion that I want to get out on stage.”
They went on: “I’m incredibly excited and optimistic that I’ll be able to accomplish it in a healthy way that allows me to give it my all for all of you… I can’t tour as I used to when I was younger when I didn’t give an (expletive) about my health and worked nonstop for days on end. I’ve learned a lot about doing my work in these challenging circumstances.”
