Carnie Wilson recently announced that she has been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy. The Wilson Phillips singer had been struggling for weeks before she made the discovery but since the diagnosis, she’s been proactive in treating the illness. Now, Carnie is documenting her treatment on Twitter.
“Just wanted you all to know that I have Bell’s palsy on left side of face right now,” Carnie announced on Twitter on March 13. “Scary, unfortunate, but it goes away. A challenge! Love you.” The very next day, Carnie asked fans, “Who believes in Acupuncture?” and revealed, “I’m treating my Bell’s Palsy with it. It’s working.”
“Twelve days out of Bell’s and doing much better! All your wishes have warmed my heart and it’s making me heal faster! Yay!” she later wrote. “Remember I go public because it’s gonna help someone else with same thing! BTW — I had it on my right side 14 years ago!”
Carnie has often been an open book with her health struggles. Last year, she spoke with FOX News about undergoing gastric bypass surgery in 1999 and then also having lap-band surgery in early 2012. “I’ve had so much stress in the last year, so it’s really a struggle,” she admitted. “I’m definitely up in weight. I’m looking forward to getting an exercise routine again. It’s like a daily decision.”
Just one day before breaking the news, Carnie had tweeted, “I’m having such challenges right now — I’m praying for peace, health , order and serenity. Love everyone’s tweets back to me. Love you all.”
