Halsey diagnosed with multiple ailments amid hospitalizations

Halsey is giving fans an update on their health after revealing they spent much of April “in and out” of the hospital.

“Obviously my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth,” the singer, who is a mom to 9-month-old son Ender, said in videos posted via Instagram Stories on Tuesday. .

“I started to get really, really, really sick…I was hospitalized for anaphylaxis, a few times, and had other stuff going on.”

Halsey, who uses the pronouns “she/they”, then revealed that they had also been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjögren’s syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) and postural orthostatic tachycardia (POTS).

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is defined by the Mayo Clinic as a group of inherited disorders that affect your connective tissues – primarily your skin, joints, and blood vessel walls – while Sjogren’s syndrome is a disorder of your connective tissues. immune identified primarily by dry eyes and dry mouth. .

The singer, who wore a heart monitor in the videos, was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.

According to Medical News Today, mast cell activation syndrome causes the immune system to inappropriately activate mast cells, causing them to release too many mediators, resulting in severe allergic reactions that affect multiple systems in the body.

Finally, the postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is characterized by an acceleration of the heart rate, a drop in blood pressure and dizziness when standing.

“I’ve been looking for answers to the root cause of some of these things, which could be autoimmune disease. And I know I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially endometriosis,” Halsey, 27, explained.
