Ozzy Osbourne revealed he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in an interview with Good Morning America. It’s been terribly challenging for us all,” Ozzy told Robin Roberts. “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.”
To complicate the matters further, Osbourne revealed he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder that progresses slowly in most people, and has no cure.
“It’s PRKN 2,” said his wife, Sharon. “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.”
“I got a numbness down this arm for the surgery; my legs keep going cold,” he said. “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.”
“To hide something is hard — you never feel proper,” he said. “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.”
