Lewis Capaldi Reveals He Has Tourette Syndrome

Lewis Capaldi revealed on Instagram Live that he’s been diagnosed with Tourette syndrome.

The 25-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter noted that he’s always had it despite not always knowing it. Capaldi explained that his shoulder twitches often because of it and his doctor prescribed Botox for his shoulder and that helped a bit.

He said: “The worst thing about it is when I’m excited I get it, when I’m stressed I get it, when I’m happy I get it. It happens all the time.

Capaldi says that sometimes when people notice it, they accuse him of doing cocaine, and he wanted to clear that up, it’s not cocaine, it’s Tourette’s syndrome.

He explained that it’s involuntary and some days it’s more painful than others and it comes and goes.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Tourette’s syndrome is a disorder “that involves repetitive movements or unwanted sounds (tics) that cannot be easily controlled.”
