Weeks after Halsey revealed that they have been "in and out" of the hospital, the singer may have a few answers for her fans.
 
Amid their recent health issues, the 27-year-old—who has been open about their ongoing health complications related to endometriosis since 2017—updated fans about their well-being on May 10 on her Instagram Story. In late April, the Control singer stated that they may be going "MIA" as they deal with the "difficult circumstances" surrounding their health condition.
 
"Obviously my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth," Halsey, who is mom to 9-month-old son, Ender, said in videos posted on Instagram Stories. "I started getting really, really, really, sick… I was hospitalized for anaphylaxis [a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction] a few times and I had some other stuff going on."

"Basically, after seeing a hundred thousand doctors," the singer continued, they were diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren's syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).

According to the National Organization for Rare Diseases, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of hereditary disorders that affect the skin, joints and blood vessel walls. Mast-cell activation syndrome includes repeated instances of anaphylaxis, and POTS is a blood circulation disorder.
