Justin Bieber reveals Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis: ‘This is really serious’

Singer Justin Bieber revealed he was recently diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome,

a condition associated with a virus that attacks the facial nerves – leaving his face partially paralyzed.

“As you can see, this eye is not blinking, I can't smile on the side of my face,

this nostril will not move,” the “Stuck With U” singer said in a video shared to his Instagram account,

showing the progression of the condition. “So there's full paralysis in this side of my face.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, Ramsay Hunt syndrome can happen when a person contracts shingles

if the virus impacts the nerve endings too close to an ear.

On top of the painful rashes and blisters associated with shingles,

those with Ramsay Hunt syndrome can experience ear pain, ringing in the ears, difficulty closing one eye,

vertigo, a change in taste and dry mouth or eyes.
