Adele reveals she suffers from a 'really bad' nerve disease called sciatica

Get well soon, Adele! Ever since Adele revealed she suffers from "very severe sciatica" during a "Weekend with Adele" Las Vegas residency concert at Caesars Palace, fans have been asking the "Easy On Me” singer sent her best wishes.

During her New Year's Eve performance, viewers noticed the 15-time Grammy winner was having difficulty moving around the stage. She then explained why she looked "wobbly", saying: "I have to be wobbly these days because my sciatica is so bad."

Sciatica is defined as "irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back to the feet." It causes pain, tingling (such as pins and needles), numbness, or weakness in the feet, toes, back of the legs, or buttocks. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and can also be triggered by movement, sneezing or coughing, according to medical journals.

Apparently, back pain has been bothering Adele for "half her life." In a November 2021 interview with The Face , the singer shared, "I've had back pain for about half my life, really. It would come on suddenly, usually from stress or stupid postures." She added, Keeping your core strong helps. "My abs are strong, at the bottom, which I never had before, but my back is also less pronounced. That means I can do more, I can run more with my kids A little." Adele's only child, Angelo, is 10 years old.

The 34-year-old singer also revealed that she has suffered two herniated discs in her life - the first being caused by a sneeze. "I slipped my first disc when I was 15 years old when I sneezed. I was lying in bed, I sneezed, and my fifth disc flew out," she told the outlet, adding that she had slipped on January 1, 2021. Yue slid out another disc. "I slipped out of my sixth disc, my L6. Then when I had my C-section, my core was useless."

Although the "Hello" singer didn't mention whether she was being treated for the condition, Adele has previously said she is seeing a different type of medical professional. At a Vegas concert, she spoke to the audience about returning to treatment. "Obviously, before, when I was going through a divorce, I was basically in therapy five times a day," she shared with a laugh. She later added, "But now I'm doing it because I just want to make sure I'm fueling myself every week to make sure I can give you everything."
