Celine Dion has been diagnosed with an incurable neurological disease.

In a post to Instagram, the 54-year-old explained to her fans that she had been dealing with a condition that causes her to suffer from spasms.

She said:

Hello everyone, I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reach out to you. I miss you all so much and can’t wait to be on stage talking to you in person.

As you know I’ve always been an open book and I wasn’t ready to say anything before but I’m ready now.

I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time and its been really difficult for me to face my challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through.

Recently I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called the stiff-person syndrome which affects 1 in a million people.

While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all the spasms I’ve been having.

She went on to explain that she would not be touring next year.

It hurts me to tell you today that this means I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February,” said the Canadian singer.

I always give 100 per cent when I do my show but my condition is now allowing me to give you that right now.

For me to reach you again I have no choice but to concentrate on my health at this moment and I have hope that I’m on the road to recovery. This is my focus and I’m doing everything I can to recuperate. I want to thank you so much for your wishes and love and support on my social media. This means a lot to me.
