Britney Spears Reveals New Health Concern in Bizarre Dance Video

Dancing helps ease the pain, the singer says, but fans appear to be more worried about her erratic posts.

If you’ve been following Britney Spears on Instagram and wonder about her famous twirling dance posts, the singer recently admitted it’s a coping mechanism for a new concern.

In a post on November 6, 2022, she described having nerve damage on the right side of her body, and that, while there is “no cure,” dancing seems to relieve some of the pain.

“Nerve damage is caused sometimes when you don’t get enough oxygen to your brain,” Spears wrote in the caption of the post. “Your brain literally shuts down.”

She describes feeling numb multiple times a week after waking up, and how “it feels like pins and needles from the right side of my body … it shoots up to my neck and the part that hurts the worst is my temple on my head”

“It stings and it’s scary,” she adds.


The Lucky singer has always been known for impressing crowds with her dance moves, and her dance training seems to come in handy for times when she’s feeling pain the most. “It’s like my mind literally goes to a place of my inner child,” she explains.

“My instagram has been not up to par to most,” she admits in the caption. There always seems to be a concern for the pop idol, but Spears fans have recently noticed a recurring pattern regarding many of the singer’s Instagram posts.

Those in the comments revealed they have seen multiple uploads and takedowns of the same content, including the latest dancing video and other content, like a photo of Spears in her “new expensive white butterfly TTTTTop,” black shorts, and white boots, remain on her profile after being posted repeatedly without explanation.

Another dance video posted on November 5, 2022, revealed information on why Spears often performs barefoot, though the caption is less coherent, according to fans.

Fans have also noticed that the latest slew of posts look like Spears is in one of her old homes, leaving many wondering if these are old videos and photos, if someone else is uploading them to Insta, and if, at the extreme, the singer has been silenced once more.

“Alright, I’m gunna have to ask you to hold up a copy of today’s newspaper,” IG user @john_doughman11 posted. “Not buying it anymore.”

Being the open book she is, it’s likely Spears will reveal more information about this health condition soon. According to the latest post, Spears is taking medication to alleviate the symptoms and is already feeling better as a result.

For those ready to wag their finger at the superstar who was recently released from a 13-year conservatorship, for whatever may have caused less oxygen to get to her vital organs, she’s not here for it:

“Blah blah blah old story,” she adds. “In that place I didn’t breathe when I was there.”

It’s another cryptic reference to a place, physically or mentally, that Spears is happy to be gone from. She concludes the post with “I’m breathing now and I can dance in time, Victoria,” (a bizarre reference to her former friend and personal assistant, Victoria Asher, who was fired back in August).

At least we know her house will be clean. “I’m gonna vacuum now !!!” she concludes, twirling off into a new day…
