“Obviously my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth,” they said. “I started getting really, really, really sick.”
Last year they gave birth to their first child, Ender, with their partner Alev Aydin.
Since then, the star has been “hospitalized for anaphylaxis a few times and had other things going on,” resulting, they said, in being diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjögren syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome. and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
Halsey said they were aware that people had noticed the heart monitor they were wearing and said the root cause of the health issues is still being investigated.
“It could potentially be another autoimmune disease and I know I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially endometriosis,” the singer said. “But it’s been exacerbated since I had Ender.”
They assured their fans that they are rehearsing for their upcoming “Love and Power” tour.
“I’m very excited and very confident that I’m going to be able to do it in a healthy way where I can do my best for all of you,” Halsey said.
