Ozzy Osbourne Diagnosed With Parkinson’s Disease

During an appearance on “Good Morning America” this morning (January 21), Ozzy Osbourne revealed that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The frontman found out about the illness last February while he was being treated for injuries he sustained in a fall.

Ozzy said the following:

“It’s been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”

After that, the singer ended up getting diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Sharon Osbourne said the following about that:

“It’s PRKN 2. There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s — it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

Ozzy also thanked his fans for their support:

“They’re my air, you know. I feel better. I’ve owned up to the fact that I have — a case of Parkinson’s. And I just hope they hang on and they’re there for me because I need them.”

Ozzy is currently on medication for Parkinson’s and nerve pain and he had the following to say about some of the symptoms that he’s experiencing:

“I got a numbness down this arm for the surgery; my legs keep going cold. I don’t know if that’s the Parkinson’s or what, you know, but that’s — see, that’s the problem. Because they cut nerves when they did the surgery. I’d never heard of nerve pain, and it’s a weird feeling.”

He went on to say that he wanted to let his fans know what’s going on:

“To hide something is hard — you never feel proper. You feel guilty. I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore. It’s like I’m running out of excuses.

I feel better now that I have owned up to the fact that I have a case of Parkinson’s.”

Ozzy and Sharon said they have already exhausted all of the medical options in the U.S. and are planning to get advice from a professor in Switzerland. Sharon continued:

“We’re going to go wherever we can go to find answers.”

Ozzy added:

“We’re lucky we can afford to do that.”
