Jessie J is struggling to sing to her full potential.
The ‘Domino’ singer, 33, shared an upsetting update on how her medical condition has impacted her singing voice. Last year, the pop star disclosed she’d been diagnosed with Ménière’s disease.
“Yesterday I tried to sing a song I can usually sing with ease, and I couldn’t. The issue I’m having isn’t my voice but is affecting my voice. And well…I sobbed. For hours,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I let myself feel the broken part of me that sometimes I know I ignore when I shouldn’t. Like fell [to] the floor TV show type s–t.”

“Six months in and I still cannot get through a full day without pain in my mid-neck / throat. Some days are so much better than others. The worst part is that it’s not my vocal cords. They are healthy and in there with their hands up like. Not us J, we got you. It’s something around them. Spine, thyroid, allergy. Who knows. The tests continue,” she revealed.

She added, “I guess I’m sharing this because people are always saying to me ‘how do you stay so positive all the time’ and truth is I don’t. I definitely don’t unpack and live in how I felt yesterday. But I don’t take pride in always pretending I’m ok. It’s not healthy. That old line ‘it’s ok not to be ok,’ I wrote it because it’s true and I still believe this platform is to inspire through truth. To anyone else going through a testing time. I feel you. I see you. We will get through this. Love you all.”

In December last year, Jessie J opened up about how Ménière’s disease has taken its toll on her.
She explained how the condition felt like “someone crawled” into her ear “and turned a hairdryer on.”
According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Diseases, Ménière’s disease affects the inner ear, which can lead to severe dizziness, ringing in the ear, and hearing loss.
