Ozzy Osbourne Reveals Parkinson’s Diagnosis
Ozzy Osbourne has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, he revealed in an interview with Good Morning America.
The Prince Of Darkness revealed that he was diagnosed with Parkin II, a form of Parkinson’s disease, following last year’s health issues that forced him to postpone his No More Tours II world tour.
“It has been terribly challenging for us all,” said Ozzy of his tumultuous 2019, sat alongside his wife Sharon.
“It’s Parkin’s II, which a form of Parkinson’s. There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s. It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does effect certain nerves in your body,” Sharon added.
“It’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
“I’ve got numbness down this arm from the surgery,” said Ozzy. “My legs keep going cold, I don’t know if that’s Parkinson’s or what… It’s a weird feeling.”
Ozzy went on to say that he is taking medication for his Parkin’s. Sharon added that they would be travelling to Switzerland to seek further treatment.
