What disease does Lady Gaga have? How does a person get Fibromyalgia?

Lady Gaga’s House of Gucci Performance Doesn’t Land Oscar Nomination Despite SAG, BAFTA Recognition

Lady Gaga was noticeably absent from the list of 2022 Academy Award nominations announced Tuesday.

The House of Gucci star, 35, was not among the names revealed for Best Actress nods.

Gaga’s omission marks a big surprise given her precursor nominations at the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA Awards.

 

What disease does Lady Gaga have?

I never had a clue that one of the most famous artists in the world had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

A statement released via Twitter on Sept. 14, 2017, proclaimed that she was “suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform.” Shortly thereafter, Gaga tweeted that she was suffering from fibromyalgia, an illness that I have been studying for 40 years. Around the same time, Netflix released the documentary film Gaga: Five Foot Two and reviews of the film mentioned that Gaga opens up about her “overwhelming pain”.

Gaga’s Medical Background, Genes, and Aunt Joanne

The background story of Lady Gaga’s deceased aunt, Joanne, as described in the documentary, was fascinating. Joanne died 41 years ago, at age 19, from systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus). From the brief discussion in the film, Joanne’s lupus had not been appropriately treated, and Joanne was told that both of her hands would require amputation, just before she died. Despite never knowing Joanne, Gaga has identified closely with her, especially recently. Lady Gaga dedicated her most recent album, as well as her current world tour, to her Aunt Joanne, and in the film, tells a New York Times reporter, “I am Joanne.” Indeed, Gaga’s full name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.

 

How does a person get fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain and spinal cord process painful and nonpainful signals.

Symptoms often begin after an event, such as physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

Women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.

While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.

 

What are usually the first signs of fibromyalgia?

Main signs and symptoms

The main symptom of fibromyalgia is pain and tenderness in muscles and joints throughout your body. The pain can shift from place to place, but to meet the criteria for a diagnosis, you’ll need to have experienced pain for at least three months. The pain must be in a specific number of body parts and be above a specific severity score. And, you must not have another condition (like arthritis) that could explain the pain.

Fibromyalgia also causes a number of other symptoms, such as:
  • fatigue
  • lack of energy
  • trouble sleeping
  • depression or anxiety
  • memory problems and trouble concentrating (sometimes called “fibro fog”)
  • headaches
  • muscle twitches or cramps
  • numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
  • itching, burning, and other skin problems

Why is Lady Gaga called Gaga?

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.

She is known for her image reinventions and musical versatility. Gaga began performing as a teenager, singing at open mic nights and acting in school plays.

She studied at Collaborative Arts Project 21, through New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, before dropping out to pursue a career in music. After Def Jam Recordings canceled her contract, she worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where she signed a joint deal with Interscope Records and Akon’s label, KonLive Distribution, in 2007.

Gaga rose to prominence the following year with her debut studio album, The Fame, and its chart-topping singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face”. The album was later reissued to include the EP The Fame Monster (2009), which yielded the successful singles “Bad Romance”, “Telephone”, and “Alejandro”.

 

How is Gaga’s husband?

Lady Gaga has a new guy in her life. After breaking off her engagement to talent agent Christian Carino and a short-lived fling with audio engineer Dan Horton, the singer is now going strong with a new beau, entrepreneur Michael Polansky.

How serious is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is typically not life threatening but can affect day-to-day activities. Pain, fatigue, and lack of sleep that occur in fibromyalgia can impair the ability to function or concentrate. Patients may also feel frustrated due to their condition, and this can lead to anxiety or depression.
