Jessie J was struck by new health issues that forced her to put her singing career on hiatus – just days after the release of her comeback single.
The 33-year-old singer has previously explained that she suffers from Ménière’s disease, but now suffers from a mysterious illness that causes her painful gastric reflux.
The star explained to her fans that she was forced to stop singing in order to protect her vocal cords and that she will undergo various tests and procedures to figure out what is wrong with her.
Her disappointing news comes just days after the release of her new song, I Want Love, which sees a return of her trademark powerful voice.
Speaking to Instagram Stories to let fans know, Jessie said, “The problem is something in my body that’s causing major acid reflux.
“It puts my vocal cords at risk if I sing along with it. It hurts and it burns. I do all I can.
She then explained the medical tests she will undergo in the coming days.
“They put a tube in your nose and in your stomach and you have to have the tube there for 24 hours. Then I have an endoscopy on Tuesday where they knock me out and go there with a camera.
“I shouldn’t have looked it up on Google. But at least I’ll have some answers as to why I turned 33 and my body said, “Girl, we’re gonna fuck you up.”
Jessie’s update comes a week after revealing that she is battling Ménière’s disease, an ear condition that causes lightheadedness and bouts of vertigo.
In a tearful video posted earlier this month, the Price Tag singer explained to her followers that doctors asked her to sing something softly as they assessed her condition.
She said, “The first song I sang was I Want Love. Just hearing myself sing it and feeling so vulnerable while singing made me cry.
“I have never to this day (since its recording) been able to sing it because of the pain I feel. Man, it’s been hard not to sing. It’s literally my lifeline and my happiness. To be. silent is not something that I’m ‘I’m good at. Or makes me feel like myself. God knows I’m strong.’
While she initially discussed her condition in December of last year, telling her subscribers: “I woke up and felt like I was completely deaf in my right ear, I couldn’t walk in a straight line.
“Basically, I’ve been told I have Ménière’s syndrome. I know a lot of people have it and a lot of people have contacted me and given me great advice, so I stayed silent. .
“This is the first time that I have been able to sing and take it. I miss singing and being with someone so much.”
