Celine Dion, the famous Canadian singer and songwriter, recently revealed that she has been living with a rare neurological disorder called stiff person syndrome (SPS).

SPS, also known as stiff man syndrome, is a rare autoimmune disorder that affects the central nervous system. It is characterized by muscle stiffness and spasms, as well as extreme sensitivity to noise and touch. The cause of SPS is not well understood, but it is thought to be related to the body's immune system mistakenly attacking the nervous system.
