Singer Sia revealed in a Twitter post on Friday that she suffers from chronic pain due to a neurological disease.

"I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going," the "Cheap Thrills" songstress wrote in a post.

Sia, whose real name is Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, said she suffers from a syndrome called Ehlers-Danlos.

In severe cases, the disorder can cause the walls of the person's blood vessels, intestines or uterus to rupture.
