Missy Elliot was diagnosed with Graves’ disease. It’s a disorder that affects your thyroid. She admits the symptoms came on so fast, she almost lost her ability to do everyday things like drive and write.
Here’s what she had to say about it:
“You live with it the rest of your life. I couldn’t write because my nervous system was so bad. I couldn’t even use a pen.”
Despite her health problems, Missy has said that she’s lost 30 lbs and is currently working in the studio with Timbaland!
