Lady Gaga's Fibromyalgia: 'It Was Hard To Be Near Someone Who Was In Pain Like That'
Tuesday 26 September 2017
From Irish newspaper The Journal:
Lady Gaga's fibromyalgia: 'It was hard to be near someone who was in pain like that'
Irish people living with fibromyalgia know only too well what Lady Gaga is going through, writes Rachel Lynch.
LADY GAGA HAD to recently cancel her European tour due to symptoms of fibromyalgia. She has made a Netflix documentary to raise awareness about living with this complex and disabling condition.
Gaga: Five Foot Two was released on September 22 and was directed by Chris Moukarbel. He described working with Gaga: “It was basically hard on a fundamental human level to be near someone who was experiencing pain like that and knowing that there is nothing you can do.”
The lyrics from her 2015 song “Til it happens to you” aptly describe the experience of living with this invisible condition: “Til it happens to you, you don’t know how it feels, how it feels.”
Jen Devlin knows only too well what Lady Gaga is talking about. The young mum, now 31, developed symptoms at the age of 24 after having her first child. It took two years before a GP listened to her and she had to attend several doctors before she was diagnosed at the age of 27.
