Lady Gaga Opens Up About Chronic Pain In New Documentary Trailer

Lady Gaga is sharing what it's like to live with chronic pain.

After revealing in early September 2017 that she has fibromyalgia, a musculoskeletal pain disorder, the singer opened up about her condition in a new trailer for her upcoming Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two. The film will begin streaming on Friday, Sept. 22.

"I have chased this pain for four or five years," the Mother Monster said over clips of her visiting her doctor. "But when I feel the adrenaline in my music and my fans, I can f**king go."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Gaga, 31, recently postponed the European leg of her Joanne World Tour due to "severe physical pain" that has "impacted her ability to perform." Originally set to kick off on Sept. 21 in Barcelona, Spain, the tour will now begin sometime in early 2018, as the "John Wayne" singer focuses on healing. Gaga had been hospitalized for "severe pain" on Thursday, Sept. 14, forcing her to pull out of her Rock in Rio performance.

The "Million Reasons" singer took to Instagram on Sunday, Sept. 17 to apologize to her fans. "I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them," she captioned a photo of herself praying with rosary beads. "It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out."

"As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference," Gaga continued. "Trauma and chronic pain have changed my life...they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans."
