Superstar Singer’s Shocking Admission

(TheIndependentStar.com) – In a shocking admission, star singer Celine Dion recently disclosed the severe impact of her health condition, including the perilously high doses of medication she was prescribed during her struggle with symptoms.

In an interview with People, the renowned 56-year-old vocalist detailed her battle with incapacitating muscle spasms and respiratory difficulties, which culminated in episodes where her body completely seized, inflicting intense pain.

Despite trying various coping and therapeutic strategies, Dion was not diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome at the time doctors recommended certain medications.

Among the prescribed drugs were muscle relaxants such as Valium.

“We started with two milligrams to see if it would help, and then 2.5, and then 3, and 15 and 50,” Dion explained to People.

She noted that the effectiveness of Valium diminished over time, and recounted an instance where she consumed 90 milligrams to endure a performance.

Dion confessed to enduring 17 years of suffering from undiagnosed symptoms that first emerged in the mid-2000s.

She admitted to not realizing the life-threatening risks posed by the excessive medication.

“It could have been fatal. I did not question the level because I don’t know medicine,” she told the publication.

Dion reflected on her experience with increasing dosages of Valium, noting, “I thought it was going to be okay. It worked for a few days, for a few weeks, and then it doesn’t work anymore.”

She acknowledged the potential dangers of her situation, saying, “I did not understand that I could have gone to bed and stopped breathing. And you learn — you learn through your mistakes.”

Dion also addressed misconceptions regarding her use of medication.

“It’s very important to know… people who know me well enough, they know that I did not take medicine just to drug myself, just to be high or to be stoned,” she clarified.

Throughout her career, Dion emphasized her professionalism and discipline, particularly in maintaining her vocal health.

“I have been as professional as can be through my whole life, a disciplined, hard-working person doing what I need to do for my voice to be in top shape,” she asserted.

In August 2022, Dion was officially diagnosed with stiff person syndrome. She began a comprehensive treatment plan that includes medications, immune therapy, vocal therapy, and extensive physical rehabilitation, engaging in these therapies five days a week.

Dion expressed a positive outlook on her therapeutic activities.

“The good thing that’s on my side is that I love doing all these things,” she remarked optimistically.
