Disease prevention and treatment

The Incurable Disease That Legendary Musician Celine Dion is Suffering From

Music icon Céline Deon was recently diagnosed with Stiff-Person Syndrome. 

Stiff Person Syndrome is a rare and incurable neurological disease that affects the central nervous system, specifically the brain and spinal cord, causing symptoms like hyper-rigidity, debilitating pain, chronic anxiety," and muscle spasms so violent they can dislocate joints and even break bones, according to the Stiff Person Syndrome Foundation.

Every part of her life is believed to be impacted by the aforementioned spasms, which can make it impossible for her to walk and even utilize her vocal chords to sing, which is something she is well-known for. 

Stiff-Person Syndrome, which is supposed to make people into "human statues" as the body gets increasingly stiff, has no known treatment. 

The condition usually develops between the ages of 30 and 60, and symptoms can vary from patient to patient.

For some patients, the illness can lead to real disability. The muscles of the torso and limbs can become rigid or spasm, often in response to external stimuli such as stress or loud noise.

This can get so bad as to cause trouble walking, even triggering falls.
