Solange Reveals Battle With Nervous System Disorder

Solange Knowles is suffering from a nervous system disorder that will make her unable to perform at South Africa’s Afropunk festival on New Year’s Eve.

The singer revealed on Instagram Wednesday that she has been battling an autonomic disorder over the last five months.

“A journey that hasn’t been easy on me,” she wrote.

“Sometimes I feel cool, and other times not so cool at all,” the “Cranes in the Sky” singer wrote.

“It’s a complicated diagnoses (sic), and I’m still learning so much myself, but right now, my doctors are not clearing me for such an extended lengthy flight, and doing a rigorous show right after,” she continued.

Solange did not share what type of autonomic disorder she was diagnosed with, but people with autonomic disorders have trouble regulating heart rate, blood pressure, digestion and body temperature as the disorder is a dysfunction in the nervous system.

Autonomic nervous system disorders could also be the result of another disease, like Parkinson’s, cancer, autoimmune diseases, alcohol abuse or diabetes, according to NYU Langone.

Symptoms include dizziness or fainting upon standing up, abnormal sweating, urinary problems, vision problems and difficulties with digestion such as loss of appetite or diarrhea and constipation.

The 31-year-old younger sister of Beyoncé has backed out of at least two shows in the past year, including one in November at Florida State University's homecoming show in which she cited a medical condition.

“Due to a medical condition, Solange is unfortunately prohibited from live performances until further notice by her team of doctors," the statement at the time read. "On behalf of Solange and the Saint Heron family, we would like to apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused and thank you for your continued support."

In July, she headlined London's Lovebox Festival and Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival within 48 hours of each after breaking out of the hospital.

"I was in hospital this morning," she told the crowd, according to reports. "I was in hospital for three days. After my show I had a serious episode and was told I shouldn't perform. And so I broke out of that b---h this morning."

She also once passed out at the airport in 2009 and was hospitalized, but credited it to dehydration.

She later tweeted about it, writing “guess I passed out,” but it is unclear if she was suffering from the autonomic disorder at the time.

On Instagram Friday, she wrote that she wasn’t sure “what exactly or how much” she wanted to share.

“As a part of the self care that I’ve tried to encourage this past year, it needs to start with myself,” she wrote. “And I’m looking forward to doing a better job of this 2018.”
