Lady Gaga has called off some of her tour dates after revealing she can barely walk after a month of physical agony.

The superstar has been struck down by severe inflammation of the joints, a condition known as synovitis.

‘I barely know what to say. I’ve been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for some time now, [and] over the past month it has worsened,’ she wrote on Facebook.

‘I’ve been praying it would heal. I hid it from my staff. I didn’t want to disappoint my amazing fans. However, after last night’s performance I could not walk and still can’t.’

    Its hard enough dealing with an auto immune disease in privet, I couldn’t imagine trying to deal with it in public with all of your staff depending on you.

    I can’t imagine having to public with this disease. I am public about my Rheumatoid Arthritis because I need people to know. Hang in there and don’t be afraid of using the chat lines (check with Webmd). Best of luck.

    It’s a big change to your way of life but maybe this being out in the open will help highlight that this is not just something that older people deal with and it can happen to anyone. The more people know, the more support there is for you!

    It sounds like Polymyalgia Rheumatica. Treated w Prednisone. Dreadfully painful and I am so sorry to hear this.

    A year ago I was struck down with auto immune disease. I too was unable to walk or do anything. Please know there are treatments that do work . In my case prednisone gave me back my life. Originally I was on high doses now I am on 3mg and hopefully by April I will be off. You are young and have always been strong this will help you. The am sending a warm hug and I preyvyou find peace.
