Ozzy Osbourne reveals Parkinson’s diagnosis
Ozzy Osbourne is not doing well health wise, and he’s now revealed that a Parkinson’s diagnosis is at the middle of it. Speaking on Good Morning America he said was diagnosed a year ago with PRKN 2 but hid it from the general public until he was ready.
“I feel better now I’ve owned up to [fans] about having Parkinson’s… To hide something is hard – you never feel proper. You feel guilty. I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore. It’s like I’m running out of excuses.”
So how is this affecting him?
“I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves… A year ago next month I was in a shocking state. I’m on a host of medication, mainly from surgery… I’ve got numbness down this arm from surgery, my legs feel like they’re going cold, I don’t know if that’s from the Parkinson’s.” But! It’s “not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination…We’re going to go anywhere we can to get answers.”
