Justin Bieber Shares Major Health Update Nine Months After Ramsay Hunt Diagnosis
Justin Bieber is getting his smile back.
The "Anyone" singer gave fans a subtle yet meaningful update on his health nine months after he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which resulted in partial facial paralysis.
In a video posted to his Instagram Stories on March 15, Bieber scans the room with his eyes and zooms in before flashing his signature smile.
"Wait for it," he captioned the video.
In June 2022, Bieber revealed he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, referring to his diagnosis as "pretty serious."
Bieber shared the news via a video which showed him unable to blink one of his eyes. Additionally, he could only smile with one side of his mouth at that time.
According to Mayo Clinic, Ramsay Hunt syndrome "occurs when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears." The virus "can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss in the affected ear."
Treatment for the condition includes a series of facial exercises as well as rest.
Shortly after Bieber shared his diagnosis with the world, the singer was forced to postpone his Justice Tour, which had been slated for the summer months last year.
"In light of Justin’s ongoing recovery, the remaining U.S. tour shows scheduled for June and early July will be postponed," a statement read at the time.
Bieber officially cancelled the tour in February.
