August Alsina has been hospitalized after losing the ability to walk.
Alsina, who is just 26, took to his Instagram Monday, sharing a video of himself lying in a hospital bed.
“Hi guys, it’s August,” he began in the clip. “As you can probably tell, I’m in the hospital. So, here’s the stitch: I woke up one day and wasn’t able to walk.”
“I couldn’t feel my legs and my doctor ended up admitting me into the hospital,” he continued.
“We’re doing a bunch of tests and they’re saying I have some nerve damage going on throughout my body.”
Alsina revealed in 2017 that he suffers from an autoimmune disease that attacks his liver. Despite his condition, Alsina managed to make light of the situation, telling his followers “I got a new car.”
He then panned the camera to show his hospital walker.
In 2014, Alsina terrified fans when he collapsed while on stage in New York and in 2015 he revealed he had to have surgery on his eye due to an eye disease that was causing him to go blind. It is not immediately clear if the incidents had to do with his autoimmune disease.
Nonetheless, Alsina doesn’t want his fans or anyone to look at him differently because of his illness.
“Reality is that I’m sick all the time. I don’t really like to talk about it because I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy. Don’t treat me like I’m a f—— cancer patient, because I’m not,” Alsina said in the Instagram post.
We all are praying for August and wish nothing but the best and a healthy return.
