What You Need to Know About Fibromyalgia, Lady Gaga's Chronic Pain Condition

Lady Gaga

The past year has been both triumphant and hard for Lady Gaga (so much so that she's taking a break from music now), and this tumultuous time in her life is being documented in the upcoming documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two. But there's so much else going on, her trips to the doctor would otherwise blend in with consulting stylists and producers.

Gaga's struggle with fibromyalgia has garnered attention in recent weeks as she postponed stops on her Joanne world tour on doctor's orders.

Gaga talks about how she took control of her public image by dressing in her infamous avant-garde outfits.

The trailer then cuts to footage of Gaga's exhaustive preparations for the 2016 NFL Superbowl half time show.

Gaga recently opened up about her struggles with fibromyalgia, a chronic musculoskeletal disease that causes pain and can also leave those suffering from it battling fatigue, headaches and insomnia.

In addition, fibromyalgia can lead to constant fatigue (often because of sleep being disrupted by pain) and "fibro fog", which can make it hard to remember or focus on important tasks.

The 21-year-old American singer-songwriter also posted a press release from Live Nation confirming the cancellation of her European leg of "Joanne World Tour".

Moreover, Lady Gaga said that she will "try to figure out" her health issues.

"Gaga: Five Foot Two" will be available on Netflix this coming Friday (September 22). "I love you so much".

Via social media, the "Applause" singer uploaded the press release from Live Nation that explained that she would have to reschedule her European tour dates, but the U.S. leg is expected to continue as normal. She posted pictures of herself in a hospital with a drip on her arm.

Director Chris Moukarbel is clearly determined to convey at least the feeling of an up-close-and-personal look at his subject and does elicit some notable comments, such as Gaga talking about being badmouthed by Madonna, who labeled her music "reductive".

"Get well soon gaga, love you", wrote one.
