“As you can see, this eye is not blinking,” the singer told his followers. “I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move, so there’s full paralysis on this side of my face.
Bieber’s wife, Hailey, also confirmed that her husband’s health was improving during an update on Good Morning America.
While it’s unclear when Bieber will be able to return to his tour, people diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome usually recover in a number of weeks to months, according to Mount Sinai.
