A week before her documentary Five Foot Two premieres on Netflix, Lady Gaga has suffered fibromyalgia flare on Thursday. She has cancelled her Rock In Rio gig, as she is hospitalized. The documentary Five Foot Two debuts on Netflix on September 22.
Her struggle with the disease is explored in her forthcoming Netflix documentary and the singer is hopeful it will help raise awareness of chronic illness. In one of the trailers for her documentary, the pop star is seen at a doctor’s office, and at the Toronto Film Festival.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic musculoskeletal disease that causes widespread pain, with patients often experiencing extreme fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression and headaches.
TheDigitalHash wishes Lady Gaga a speedy recovery.
