There have been rumors circulating that Ozzy Osbourne is on his deathbed. Turns out, this information is FALSE.
Ozzy sat down in an interview with GMA, to let the world know that he is suffering from a form of Parkinson’s Disease.
Ozzy says that he suffered a fall about a year ago, and nothing has been the same since. He had to undergo surgery, and that messed up the nerves down his arm. He now suffers from serious nerve pain and numbness on an almost daily basis.
The thing is, though, that in the midst of the fall and the surgeries, it was determined that Ozzy suffers from Parkins II. According to Sharon Osbourne, it is a mild form of Parkinson’s disease that causes problem with Ozzy’s central nervous system.
So now, the doctors are not sure what is causing all of Ozzy’s pain and numbness. It was probably partly due to the fall, and cut nerves during the surgery, but it is probably also related to the disease. He has had to go on a regimen of daily pills to try to fight the symptoms.
Over the past year, Ozzy has had to stop touring — which is his true love.
He simply wasn’t well enough to go out night after night, and perform on stage. There are some days that he can barely walk.
He says that he has improved tremendously over the last year, but the doctors in the U.S. have reached their limit of expertise. They are now going to doctors in Switzerland to try and get the relief Ozzy needs.
It has truly been a family affair, with son, Jack, being the first to realize there was something wrong with his famous father. The family has come together to rally around Ozzy, and get him all the help he needs.
The GMA interview was split into two segments, and you can catch both of them below.
Our thoughts are with the family, and we truly hope he finds the answers he needs, and gets the help that will improve the quality of his life.
