Spears revealed she wakes up ‘like three times a week in bed with my hands are completely numb’ and feelings of ‘pins and needles’ on the right side of her body.
‘It shoots up to my neck and the part that hurts the worst is my temple on my head… it stings and it’s scary,’ she explained, adding how ‘the last 3 years since I got out of that place I’ve been in a mild unconscious state… I couldn’t face it.’

‘It was like it was too scary to be here … although my instagram has been not up to par to most … hey hey hey it gave me existence and got me here,’ she continued, before sharing that she does’t ‘feel the pain when I dance.’
‘It’s like my mind literally goes to a place of my inner child. And although I don’t move like I use to … I truly believe my faith in it gave me strength … by the grace of God I finally found a medication where I actually feel oxygen going to my brain and through my neck,’ she wrote .
She went on to share that her health issues have gotten ‘a lot better’ in more recent times.
‘My eyes are more open now and I can hold my head up correctly… I’ve done a good job trying to pull it off. Either way I’m getting a lot better, I can breathe … I feel smarter because well, Jesus I can breathe now … either way, I’m breathing now and I can dance in time, Victoria … I send all my love to every single one of you … this is me this morning … I’m gonna vacuum now!!!’ she ended the post.
