The singer returned to clarify her diagnosis after the weekend. She noted that EDS wasn’t a neurological disease.

She said:

“If you'd like more information, it's neuralgia caused by a routine surgery three years ago. My TSH is also 29, it's supposed to be below 4, so I'm severely hypothyroid.”

It must have been a lot for Sia to be open about her condition. Our prayers are with her.
