Lady Gaga has revealed she is struggling with a chronic pain disease and is set to release a documentary highlighting her battle and to raise awareness of the condition.
A report on the Daily Mail online has revealed Lady Gaga’s struggle with fibromyalgia - a disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain throughout the body. The disease affects an estimated five million in the United States and 80 to 90 percent of those people are women. There is currently no treatment for it. However, researchers in a clinical trial at Rice University in Houston, Texas, along with two Israeli research institutes, have determined that after two months of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the condition of every one of 48 female participants diagnosed with fibromyalgia who completed the program improved.
Lady Gaga’s documentary is titled Gaga: Five Foot Two and will be released on Netflix, the Daily Mail reported.
