Justin Bieber, only 28, Stricken With Rare Case of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome
Justin Bieber, who’s only 28, just announced he’s got a rare case of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, and he was forced to cancel some upcoming shows due to facial paralysis.
What is Ramsay Hunt Syndrome?
“Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) is a rare neurological disorder characterized by paralysis of the facial nerve (facial palsy) and a rash affecting the ear or mouth. Ear abnormalities such as ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and hearing loss may also be present. Ramsay Hunt syndrome is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox in children and shingles in adults. In cases of Ramsay Hunt syndrome, previously inactive (dormant) varicella-zoster virus is reactivated and spreads to affect the facial nerve.”
There have been a lot of reports of shingles outbreaks (varicella-zoster virus) post vaccination.
I had a large thread on Twitter of a few hundred comments about others having a shingles outbreak post vaccination, however yesterday Twitter suspended my account, and now no one can see the 21,000+ tweets I had about adverse reactions from the COVID Vaccine.
Here’s just one of the many articles with an excerpt below. The researchers reveal that they diagnosed a previously healthy 37-year-old man with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS), two days after he got his first dose of the COVID vaccine.
Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Following COVID-19 Vaccination
“We recently diagnosed Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) in a 37-year-old previously healthy man. Two days after his first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech (BNT162b2) vaccine, he noticed fever and a pain in the right ear. Vesicles were then developed in his right ear and canal, together with vertigo, tinnitus and loss of hearing. He complained of facial palsy, tongue numbness and dysgeusia. On examination, he had grade 4 right facial nerve palsy of the lower motor neuron type with right sensorineural hearing loss (figure 1A). There were no other neurological deficits. Vesicles with serous discharge were found over the right concha and external auditory canal (figure 1B). A swab of the exudate was positive for varicella-zoster DNA on PCR, while throat saliva was negative for SARS-COV-2. A CT scan of the brain was normal. The diagnosis was RHS leading to peripheral facial nerve palsy, vestibulocochlear neuropathy and glossopharyngeal somatic sensory neuropathy. As his symptoms developed 2 days after vaccination, we suspected the vaccination triggered RHS. This would be the first reported case of RHS after COVID-19 vaccination.”
Here’s another medical journal studying if the COVID Vaccine can increase the risk of reactivation of VZV:
Can SARS‐CoV‐2 vaccine increase the risk of reactivation of Varicella zoster? A systematic review
“A total of 54 cases consisting of 27 male and 27 female patients have been reported. There were cases with known risk factors for herpes zoster, which included age more than 50 years (n = 36), immunological disorders (n = 10), chronic disease (n = 25), metabolic disorder (n = 13), malignancy (n = 4), and psychiatric disorder (n = 2). The mean (SD) period between development of herpes zoster and COVID‐19 vaccination was 7.64 (6.92) days. Majority of the cases were from the high‐income and/or middle‐income countries. 86.27% of the cases of HZ were reported due to mRNA vaccine. Thirty‐six patients 36/45 (80%) developed herpes zoster following the priming dose of COVID‐19 vaccine among those who received mRNA vaccine.”
Herpes zoster following BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccination in patients with autoimmune inflammatory rheumatic diseases: a case series
A study conducted in Israel found that six participants out of 491 experienced mild shingles for the first time after getting their first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
Increased number of Herpes Zoster cases in Brazil related to the COVID-19 pandemic
Data gathered in Brazil showed an increase of approximately 10 cases of shingles for every one million residents during the pandemic.
There are however, natural remedies that inhibit replication, of both herpes viruses and also pox viruses, as demonstrated in this paper here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-76151-w
As we have already shown after his wife’s ‘mysterious blood clot & stroke’ situation, both the Justin & Hailey attended the Met Gala in 2021, which required guests to be fully vaccinated. You can read more about her health scare HERE.
Hailey and Justin did attend the Met Gala September 13, 2021.
Which according to PEOPLE: The Met Gala to Require Attendees to Be Vaccinated Against COVID-19 and Wear Masks
Hailey and Justin both attended the Met Gala, this below image came from VOGUE.
Justin also required fans to be vaccinated to attend his concerts.
So it would seem that Hailey and Justin have been Vaccinated, just given the facts above.
Wishing Justin a quick recovery.
