The "Chandelier" singer took to Twitter on Friday to reveal a neurological disease diagnosis, sharing her story in an effort to normalise chronic pain and talk about the struggle many sufferers face on a daily basis.

Although Sia described Ehlers-Danlos syndrome as a neurological disease, it's not typically regarded as such.

"I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going".

"Life is f***ing hard. Pain is demoralising, and you're not alone".

As of Saturday afternoon, more than 100,000 people had liked Sia's tweet and many people who said they had the syndrome thanked her for bringing more awareness to the disease.
