Jessie J has revealed to fans as she revealed she is undergoing tests for a mystery medical problem.
The star shared a video where she’s seen with a tube up her nose, after suffering bouts of bad acid reflux that’s leaving her struggling.
The Domino singer, 33, posted a video on Friday of her dancing in her new merchandise for single I Want Love, and explained the nasal tube in a note on the clip.
While she was seen laughing and dancing in the sped-up video, she wrote: “I am doing a reflux acid test for 24 hours (why I have a tube up my nose). I am going to blame that as the reason why this is so bad.”
Despite the mystery illness, she appears to be in good spirits, and later shared a joke from her dad which declared her Instagram her “Your Tube channel”
“My dad’s got jokes,” she wrote next to it.
The new clips come three days after she shared a video of herself at the doctors undergoing tests where a camera was placed up her nose and down her throat to see if they could locate the problem.
In between snippets of her latest single, Jessie was seen humming and taking sharp intakes of breath during the uncomfortable procedure.
The star explained next to it: “My heart said: ‘I want LOVE’
“My body said: ‘I want months, like everyday of unexplainable severe acid reflux symptoms and nodules that come and go if you talk and sing, 100 different tests, and for you to go on the biggest emotional rollercoaster that has you questioning your next move because you can’t promote or sing the song that took years of confidence building to write. That’s what I want.’”
“If I don’t start to laugh and accept what this year has and is continuing to look like for now,” she continued. “Instead of what it should and what I wanted it to. I will continue to cry.
“If singing and performing can’t get me through this. My sense of humour will.”
Jessie has been suffering from a number of illnesses of late, with a diagnosis of Ménière's disease earlier this year – which caused her to break down in tears in another emotional Instagram.
The illness is a condition that affects the inner ear, causing the sufferer to have bouts of vertigo and dizziness, as well as hearing loss.
She’s also had vocal nodules which could have a permanent impact on her singing abilities if left untreated.
Revealing all of this to fans, Jessie wrote a long statement explaining that she hasn’t been able to sing her new single since recording it because it was too painful.
As part of her statement, she wrote: “I have never ever to this day (since recording it) been able to to sing it because of the pain I am experiencing. Man it's been hard not singing.
“It's literally my lifeline and my happiness. Being quiet is not something I'm good at. Or makes me feel like myself. Lord knows I'm loud as f**k.
“It was in that moment I knew I needed to be honest with myself and honest with you all about where I am at and explain what is going on…
“To be totally real, to have your support and love would help me get through this faster I'm sure.
'I've always been honest however hard it feels. It's important to be strong enough to be weak. Especially on a platform like this.”
