Scottish singer-songwriter, Lewis Capaldi, had to address fans’ worries after a video of him appearing to have a slight twitching movement went viral on social media. The video, which was taken at one of his performances, sparked concern among fans who took to social media to inquire about his well-being. In response, Capaldi posted a message on his social media platforms to assure his fans that he was perfectly fine and that the twitching was a result of a minor muscle spasm. The 26-year-old also thanked his fans for their concern and support, and reassured them that he would be back to performing as usual.
The Scottish leader reminded his followers that he has Tourette’s syndrome, a condition that causes him to have certain ‘tics’ that manifest in different ways. These tics can include twitching or sudden movements in the shoulders, which may appear as if he is not in control of his body. However, he emphasized that this is simply a part of how his nervous system functions and nothing to be alarmed about. He is used to it and it is nothing out of the ordinary for him.
In the TikTok video, Capaldi says:
“Hello it’s Lewis here. I’ve seen this video here doing the rounds on TikTok and I see a lot of people in the comments concerned because I’m twitching quite a lot. I’m doing this quite a lot and look a bit uncomfortable.
“I’ve got Tourette’s so I’m just twitching quite a bit but it’s not an issue in the slightest.
“I’m absolutely fine. It’s just that this happens when I get tired, nervous, excited or whatever so it just gets more intense.
“I’m not doing it now at all because I’m lying in my bed in my pants but this is at the end of an hour and a half gig and I’m singing in front of 15,000 people.
In September of last year, Lewis came forward and shared with his peers that he had been living with Tourette’s for quite some time. He revealed that he had been diagnosed in March, but had been experiencing symptoms for years prior to that and had not recognized it as Tourette’s.
What is tourette syndrome?
Tourettes is a condition where a person has these sudden and uncontrollable urges to make noises or movements, called tics. These tics can be different for everyone, some people might blink a lot, others might make noises, or even curse.
For Lewis, it probably hasn’t been easy. Living with Tourettes can be tough because you can’t really control when the tics happen, and it can make it hard for people to understand or accept. It’s also likely that he’s had to deal with people staring or making fun of him because of his tics. But the good news is, with the right support and treatment, people with Tourettes can learn to manage their symptoms and live full lives.
