Two weeks ago, Justin revealed he was suffering from a “non-covid related illness” to his Instagram followers.
In a video posted to his social media, he couldn’t blink and didn’t move the right side of his face as he spoke.
“Of course, as you can probably tell from my face. I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it’s from this virus that attacks the nerves in my ear and my facial nerves and has left my face paralyzed,” he began.

Justin later updated, posting a sad update on his Instagram story when he wrote: ‘It’s getting harder and harder to eat which is extremely frustrating, please pray for me [tearing up emoji]†
In the posted clip, Justin showed the devastating effects of his diagnosis as he showed how his eye won’t blink, can’t smile, and can’t move his nostril all the way on the right side of his face.
He explained, “So there is complete paralysis on this side of my face. So for those frustrated with my cancellations from the following shows, I’m clearly physically unable to do them. This is pretty serious as you can see.

“I wish this wasn’t the case, but obviously my body is telling me to slow down and I hope you understand. I will use this time to rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so I can do what I was born to do.”
According to FacialPalsy.org.uk, if antiviral treatment is given within 72 hours of symptom onset, about 70 percent of people will recover almost completely, and if nerve damage is mild, recovery should occur within a few weeks .
Justin concluded by saying that he is doing everything he can, including rest, to address the issue, but was honest as he said he doesn’t know how long it will take for him to recover.

WHAT IS RAMSAY HUNT SYNDROME? THE RARE COMPLICATION OF shingles that leads to facial paralysis
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a complication of shingles, caused by the same virus as chickenpox (VZV), which can lead to facial paralysis.
The virus reactivates after years of dormancy and causes inflammation and irritation of the facial nerves.
VZV is harmless unless reactivated and when this happens new symptoms will appear.
The virus can be reactivated when the immune system is weakened and less able to fight infection. Stress is often a trigger.

Figures suggest that five in every 100,000 adults in the US will develop RHS. It poses a similar threat in the UK, according to the NHS.
Children are rarely affected by RHS, as the complication usually affects adults in their 60s.
Treatment usually includes antiviral medication. Doctors recommend seeking help within three days of the onset of symptoms.
