“It’s like somebody is strangling you. It’s like somebody is pushing your larynx/pharynx. It was like talking like that, and you cannot go high or lower,” she said.

It feels like, if I point my feet, they will stay in (that position). Or, if I cook – because I love to cook – my fingers, my hands, will get in position … It’s cramping but it’s like in a position where you cannot unlock them.

“I have broken ribs at one point because sometimes when its very severe, it can break.”

Recall that the singer first shared that she was diagnosed with stiff person syndrome in December 2022.

Dion said she initially tried to cope with the symptoms, before accepting that her life was destined to change.

She added that she is now learning how to live with and manage it, “but not to let it define me.”
