Lady Gaga Covers ‘Arthritis’ Magazine: “Hip Pain Can’t Stop Me”
EDIT: Images via GovnHooker.
Well, this is a little… unexpected! Lady Gaga covers the latest issue of Arthritis magazine. The interview hasn’t surfaced online yet, but the headline reads: “Hip pain can’t stop me.” Of course, Mother Monster has been open about her health issues. In 2013, she had to cancel part of the Born This Way Ball in order to get surgery. “My injury was actually a lot worse than just a labral tear,” she told Woman’s Wear Daily. “I had broken my hip. Nobody knew, and I haven’t even told the fans yet.”
“But when we got all the MRIs finished before I went to surgery there were giant craters, a hole in my hip the size of a quarter, and the cartilage was just hanging out the other side of my hip,” Gaga continues. “I had a tear on the inside of my joint and a huge breakage. The surgeon told me that if I had done another show I might have needed a full hip replacement.” Since then she has kept fans updated via Instagram. The “Million Reasons” diva is still in chronic pain, but using natural remedies to keep it at bay. See the full cover below.

Gaga’s battle with chronic pain:
I was so overwhelmed by the empathy, confessions & personal stories of chronic pain in response to my previous post I thought what the hell. Maybe I should just share some of my personal remedies I've acquired over the past five years. Everyone's body and condition is different U should consult w ure Dr. but what the heck here we go! When my body goes into a spasm one thing I find really helps is infrared sauna. I've invested in one. They come in a large box form as well as a low coffin-like form and even some like electric blankets! You can also look around your community for a infrared sauna parlor or homeopathic center that has one. I combine this treatment with marley silver emergency blankets (seen in the photo) that trap in the heat and are very cheap, reusable and effective for detox as well as weight loss! In order to not overheat my system and cause more inflammation i follow this with either a VERY cold bath, ice bath (if u can stand it, it's worth it) or the most environmentally savvy way is to keep many reusable cold packs in the freezer ( or frozen peas' n carrots'!) and pack them around the body in all areas of pain. Hope this helps some of you, it helps me to keep doing my passion, job and the things I love even on days when I feel like I can't get out of bed. Love you and thank you for all your positive messages.
