Halsey ‘was called crazy and anxious and lazy’ before getting diagnosed after 8 years of sickness

Three-time Grammy nominee Halsey ‘was called crazy and anxious and lazy among other things’ in the eight years it took for her to be formally diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjögren’s syndrome, Mast Cell Activation syndrome, and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia.

‘I’ve been sick for a long time. My sicknesses just have their names now. I went to doctors for eight years trying to figure out what was wrong with me,’ the 27-year-old biracial pop star – who boasts 68.8M social media followers – Instastoried on Wednesday.

‘I changed my entire lifestyle. When I wasn’t working I was essentially confined to my home for fear of how I’d feel when I woke up each morning. It took me a long time to get to even having a diagnosis so I’m celebrating!. Don’t roll your eyes at your sick friends. They could be fighting a battle that they haven’t named yet. [You] know?’

‘I’ve been sick for a long time’: Three-time Grammy nominee Halsey ‘was called crazy and anxious and lazy among other things’ in the eight years it took for her to be formally diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjögren’s syndrome, Mast Cell Activation syndrome, and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia (pictured Thursday)

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of 13 hereditary disorders of connective tissue that affect your connective tissues – primarily your skin, joints, and blood vessel walls. Symptoms include pain, fatigue, overly flexible joints, and fragile/stretchy skin.

Sjögren’s syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease that causes extensive dryness and can cause fatigue, chronic pain, dysfunction of organs, neuropathies, and lymphomas.

Mast Cell Activation syndrome is a condition that causes increased risk of suffering Anaphylaxis (a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction).

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia is a disorder where most of your blood stays in your lower body when you stand up, and in response, your heart rate jumps and your blood pressure lowers.

‘I’m on a treatment plan right now’: Halsey’s ‘clarification’ came the day after she revealed the cause of her chronic illness, which led to her being hospitalized ‘a few times’ with Anaphylaxis 

The New Jersey native – whose pronouns are she/they – explained: ‘I’ve known I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially having endometriosis. It’s kind of been exacerbated since having [my nine-month-old son Ender Ridley Aydin]’

Halsey’s ‘clarification’ came the day after she revealed the cause of her chronic illness, which led to her being hospitalized ‘a few times’ with Anaphylaxis.

‘I’m still looking for answers to the root cause of some of these things. They could potentially be another form of autoimmune disease. And I’ve known I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially having endometriosis. It’s kind of been exacerbated since having [my nine-month-old son Ender Ridley Aydin],’ the New Jersey native – whose pronouns are she/they – explained.

‘I’m keeping you guys updated because I know you’re seeing the heart monitor and I’m sick all the time and I don’t want anybody to be worrying. I’m on a treatment plan right now.’

Halsey – who suffers from bipolar disorder and ADHD – also discovered that she’s ‘allergic to everything’ after undergoing a skin test last Friday.
