In June of 2022, Justin Bieber revealed that he was diagnosed with Ramsey Hunt Syndrome, which caused temporary paralysis on one side of his face. Bieber stated that he experienced pain and discomfort in his face for several weeks, which he initially thought was due to dental work.
It’s been confirmed that Justin Bieber has now cancelled his run of 02 shows in Feb due to Ramsay Hunt syndrome. Caused by shingles. But definitely not caused by the miracle jab which definitely didn’t hand his missus Hailey a blood clot on the brain either. Just coincidences. 😳 pic.twitter.com/s0FsiEtsKx

However, he later discovered that he had the rare neurological disorder, caused by the reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus, which is responsible for chickenpox and shingles. Bieber shared his experience on Instagram, raising awareness about the syndrome and encouraging people to seek medical help if they experience similar symptoms. He also expressed his gratitude for his recovery and support from his fans.
Ramsey Hunt Syndrome, also known as herpes zoster oticus or geniculate neuralgia, is a rare neurological disorder that occurs due to the reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus, which is responsible for chickenpox and shingles. The syndrome causes inflammation and damage to the facial nerve, which can lead to severe facial pain, a rash in and around the ear, hearing loss, dizziness, and muscle weakness in the face.
It can also affect taste and cause dry eyes and mouth. The symptoms can vary in severity and may require treatment with antiviral medications, corticosteroids, and painkillers. Early diagnosis and treatment can improve the outcome of the syndrome.
