Which illness does Celine Dion suffer from? 

Celine Dion has suffered from incredibly rare disease Stiff Person Syndrome for more than 17 years. In a recent interview with NBC, Celine revealed she was forced to cancel shows and change her singing style while seeking out a diagnosis for her ongoing spasms. 

 “If I can’t run, I’ll walk. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl,” she says in the heart-wrenching documentary trailer. “And I won’t stop. I won’t stop.”

According to the Columbia University Irving Medical Centre, SPS is a progressive autoimmune and neurological disorder that affects less than 5000 people in the United States.
