The 27-year-old took to Instagram Stories to reveal he was having multiple issues at the same time.
Halsey, who gave birth to son Ender 9 months ago, shared: “Obviously my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth.

It took “seeing a hundred thousand doctors” to find out they had “Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome, POTS [postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome]…and I’m still looking for answers to the root cause of some of these things that could be another type of autoimmune disease. They added: “And I know I’ve had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially endometriosis.”
According to the Mayo Clinic, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome “is a group of inherited disorders that affect your connective tissues – primarily your skin, joints, and blood vessel walls,” while Sjogren’s syndrome “is a disorder of your immune system identified by its two main common symptoms – dry eyes and dry mouth.

WebMD describes mast cell activation syndrome as “a condition that causes mast cells to release an inappropriate amount of chemicals into your body. This causes allergy symptoms and a wide range of other symptoms. The Cleveland Clinic describes POTS as “a condition that affects blood circulation” and can cause symptoms such as “dizziness, fainting, and an uncomfortable, rapid increase in heart rate – which occur when you rise from a tilted position and feel relieved inside sitting or lying down.”
Halsey told fans, “I don’t want anyone to worry. I’m on treatment right now.” The star is also preparing for her Love and Power tour, saying, “I’m really excited and I’m really confident that I can do this in a healthy way where I can do my best for you all… I’m here, I’m ready to go. The tour is going to be crazy.
