Lady Gaga revealed in her Netflix documentary that fibromyalgia has been causing her chronic pain over the last several years.

The documentary, “Gaga: Five Foot Two,” shows the singer being treated for chronic pain that she took to Twitter on Tuesday to identify specifically as fibromyalgia, a disease that causes widespread joint and muscle pain throughout the body as well as fatigue, sleep, memory, and mood issues.

Gaga, 31, had surgery on a broken hip in 2013 and now suffers from muscle spasms that cause pain on her entire right side, People reported.

The documentary shows the singer often has to stop working because of the pain, and that staffers massage her muscles and put ice on her to keep her going.

“Do I look pathetic?” she asked at one point, trying to hide tears. “I’m so embarrassed.”

At the Toronto International Film Festival to promote the documentary, Gaga said of her pain, “It’s hard, but it’s liberating, too,” Variety reported, adding that she wanted to talk about her illness so that others who have it didn’t feel alone.

“I think the most important thing you can do is be authentic,” Gaga said, Variety reported.

Twitter followers were supportive of the singer and thanked her for sharing her experience.
