In a video posted on Instagram, Justin Bieber, 27, asked for prayer because he is struggling with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which has resulted in him having to cancel some upcoming concerts, CBN reports.

“As you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome,” Justin told his fans. “As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move, so there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.”

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) occurs when a shingle outbreak occurs on the face near a facial nerve.

According to the Mayo Clinic, shingles is a result of having previously caught Chicken Pox. After recovering from this disease, the virus continues to live in a person’s nerves and can sometimes reactivate when you are older in the form of Shingles.

Though typically people are more vulnerable to shingles after the age of 60, RHS symptoms can result in facial paralysis that includes difficulty in closing your eyes, hearing loss and vertigo.

Though these symptoms normally clear up, there is also the possibility they can become permanent.

In his Instagram post, Justin said:

It’s gonna be okay and I have hope. I trust God and I trust that it’s all for a reason. I’m not sure what that is right now but in the meantime, I’m gonna rest.”
