The disease weakens the connective tissue in your body, typically leading to joint pain and super elastic and fragile skin.

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.

Friday's jobs data underscored the benefits of a hot job market for lower-paid Americans and traditionally disadvantaged workers. The monthly report also showed wage growth was unchanged, and manufacturing payrolls declined for the first time in six months.

Keep going: 'I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going. Life is fucking laborious.

'You inspire so many of us, @Sia.

There are a few variations of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sia has not specified which she has.

Joint hypermobility can cause loose and unstable joints which leads to a number of issues, including frequent dislocations as well as early onset osteoarthritis.

Worldwide, the syndrome is believed to effect one in every 5,000 people. She offered a message of support to everyone else experiencing pain. Following the release of her breakthrough album 1000 Forms of Fear in 2013, the Australian singer performed without showing her face, sometimes facing the back of the stage or wearing oversized wigs with bangs that covered her nose.
