Carnie Wilson reveals scary diagnosis on Twitter!

Carnie Wilson has revealed that she is suffering from Bell’s Palsey. The condition, which affects the nerve that controls the muscle on the side of the face, weakens the muscle and leads to droopiness.

Bell’s Palsey can happen at any age – and is usually temporary for most. Within a few weeks, symptoms begin to improve and after six months, most have completely recovered. The exact cause for Bell’s palsy is unclear, although it has been linked to exposure to a viral infection.

Actors George Clooney and Pierce Brosnan both had Bell’s palsy as children and made full recoveries.

After breaking the news to her followers, the 44-year-old singer, mother and “Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off” contestant said she has been getting acupuncture and that the treatments have been working.

Prior to revealing her condition, Wilson tweeted about going through a difficult time. “I’m having such challenges right now – I’m praying for peace, health , order and serenity. Love everyone’s tweets back to me. Luv u allxxxx,” she posted on March 12.

The singer, who has struggled with her weight for years, has been open about her personal issues in the past.

Wilson got lap-band surgery in 2012 after undergoing gastric bypass surgery in 1999 to lose 150 pounds. She has said that learning to love herself has been a work in progress. “I’m not striving for perfection. This has to be for the rest of my life,” she told People magazine earlier this month.

“I tell my daughters, ‘You have to love yourself,'” she later added. “If I ever hear them put themselves down I tell them, ‘Don’t say that. You have to say positive things about yourself because you are what you think you are.’ For me, I know I don’t weigh 120 pounds, but I’m also not 500 pounds. I am who I am and I celebrate where I am when I’m there.”

Carnie Wilson undergoes weight loss surgery – for the second time!

Twelve years ago Carnie Wilson underwent gastric bypass surgery, and lost 150 pounds. After gaining a lot of weight back, the singer underwent the same surgery (lap-band) again on January 18.

During the procedure, a silicone band is placed around the stomach to create a pouch about the size of a golf ball. Since having the surgery, Wilson, 43, has lost 30 pounds so far.

“It was the right decision for me and I’m doing really well so far,” Wilson tells PEOPLE. “It’s all about taking good care of myself.”

The singer, who is reuniting with Wilson Philips to promote their new album, Dedicated and their TV Guide Network reality show, Wilson Philips: Still Holding On, has struggled to lose the post-pregnancy pounds. Wilson has two daughters, Lola, 6, and Luciana, 2, with her musician husband Rob Bonfiglio, 44.

“Having children derailed me a bit,” Wilson told PEOPLE in 2010 of her weight struggles. “I’m just frustrated with these pounds.”

Wilson Philips’s new album drops April 3 and their series premieres on April 8.

I’ve heard that you can just eat your way around those surgeries. I’m surprised she did it again – rather than try and deal with why she’s eating like that in the first place.
