Lady Gaga Opens Up About Experiencing PTSD & Chronic Pain

Since she first shone a spotlight on her experience with fibromyalgia, a condition that causes joint and muscular pain, in her documentary, Five Foot Two, Lady Gaga has been open about how chronic illness has affected her.In a new interview with Vogue, Gaga expressed her frustration that people don’t take fibromyalgia more seriously, and discussed the mental health issues that she believes have worsened her chronic pain.”I get so irritated with people who don’t believe fibromyalgia is real,” she said. “For me, and I think for many others, it’s really a cyclone of anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, and panic disorder, all of which sends the nervous system into overdrive, and then you have nerve pain as a result.”
