Back in 2004, Shania Twain produced one of her greatest hits, but right when she was at the top of her career, she went missing from all the limelight.
Years later, the reason behind her hiatus was related to the Shania Twain’s Lyme Disease.
After her 7 years long hiatus, she came back stronger with her first single “Today Is Your Day” in 2012.
Now in her latest Netflix Documentry, Shania Twain has reveaaled her struggles during the period.
In fact, she called out that particular period as one of the scary period of her life as she sufferef from multiple blackouts and dizz spells.
The worst part is all this happened when she wasn’t even aware of this lyme disease.
She said, “Before I was diagnosed, I was on stage very dizzy,” she said in “Not Just a Girl.” “I was losing my balance, I was afraid I was gonna fall off the stage.”
“I was having these very, very, very millisecond blackouts, but regularly, every minute or every 30 seconds.”
Shania Twain Lyme Disease not only reduced her stage time, but also caused the country music’s reigning diva to briefly lose her voice due to a condition called dysphonia.
She revealed,”“My voice was never the same again.” “I thought I’d lost my voice forever. I thought that was it, [and] I would never, ever sing again.”
Back in 2020, in an interview to Loose Women, Shania Twain opened up and said, “There was a point where I thought I’d have to accept that I’d never be able to sing again.”
During her 7 years long hiatus, her doctor was able to identify the voice problems were due to Lyme disease-related nerve injury to the vocal cords.
Shania Twain had to go through extensive throat surgery to repair the damage to her vocal cords, which nearly ended her career. She “luckily” persisted and can now record and perform once more.
As one of country music’s most successful female performers, Twain ranks high among industry greats. She’s been performing for for three decades, during which time she’s amassed five Grammys and sold millions of Albums.
