Lady Gaga Reveals Her Struggle With Chronic Pain in Emotional Message to Fans
Lady Gaga is opening up about her battle with chronic pain.
On Thursday (November 17), the 30-year-old singer took to Instagram to share a photo of a doctor treating pain in her shoulder (below).
“Having a frustrating day with chronic pain, but I find myself feeling so blessed to have such strong intelligent female doctors,” Gaga wrote. “I think about Joanne too and her strength and the day gets a little easier. Plus I got @wanaynay by my side. ‘Hey Girl, we can make it easy if we lift each other.’ 🌸.”
Gaga is, of course, referring to her aunt Joanne , who inspired her latest album.
On Friday, Gaga returned to Instagram to respond to the overwhelming positive messages she has received from fans since her original post.
“I was so overwhelmed by the empathy, confessions & personal stories of chronic pain in response to my previous post I thought what the hell,” she added. “Maybe I should just share some of my personal remedies I’ve acquired over the past five years. Everyone’s body and condition is different U should consult w ure Dr. but what the heck here we go!”

“When my body goes into a spasm one thing I find really helps is infrared sauna,” she continued. “I’ve invested in one. They come in a large box form as well as a low coffin-like form and even some like electric blankets! You can also look around your community for a infrared sauna parlor or homeopathic center that has one. I combine this treatment with marley silver emergency blankets (seen in the photo) that trap in the heat and are very cheap, reusable and effective for detox as well as weight loss! In order to not overheat my system and cause more inflammation i follow this with either a VERY cold bath, ice bath (if u can stand it, it’s worth it) or the most environmentally savvy way is to keep many reusable cold packs in the freezer ( or frozen peas’ n carrots’!) and pack them around the body in all areas of pain. Hope this helps some of you, it helps me to keep doing my passion, job and the things I love even on days when I feel like I can’t get out of bed. Love you and thank you for all your positive messages.”
