Celine Dion has shared more details about her struggle with Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare neurological autoimmune disorder. In an interview with Hoda Kotb on Today, the 56-year-old Grammy winner described the intense pain and challenges she faces, especially when singing.

Dion said it feels “like somebody’s strangling you” and demonstrated how it affects her throat, making it difficult to control her voice.

Dion also talked about severe muscle spasms, which are common with the condition. These spasms can affect her abdomen, spine, and ribs, sometimes causing her ribs to break.

She explained that her muscles can cramp and lock into painful positions, making simple tasks like cooking very difficult.

Dion first revealed her diagnosis in December 2022 and has since limited her public appearances to focus on her health, even canceling a world tour.

She will share more about her experience in an upcoming documentary titled “I Am: Celine Dion” and a full interview with Kotb airing on June 11 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
