Adele’s Sciatica Flare-Up Caused Her to Collapse Backstage
Adele’s latest sciatica flare-up ended up with the singer collapsing. The “Easy On Me” singer revealed that she collapsed backstage during her Las Vegas residency. Sciatic pain is an irritation of the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the human body, which runs from the lower back to the legs. Per the Mayo Clinic, Sciatica most often occurs when a herniated disk or an overgrowth of bone puts pressure on part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain, numbness, and even shooting or burning pain from the lower back down one leg.
Per The Sun, Adele, 35, told fans in the crowd that she fell and was unable to move because of a sciatica attack. “They picked my whole body up off the floor,” she explained to fans. “I am going to sit down and rest my sciatica.”
Rolling Deep In The Sciatic Pain
This isn’t the first time Adele has been dealing with sciatic pain. Back in January, Adele was waddling on stage. A month later, the singer told the audience during one of her Vegas shows that she is performing with a disintegrated disc in her spine. She said at the time, “I have got really bad sciatica in my left leg and my L5 disc is not f——— there anymore. It’s worn away.”
Adele’s back issues go back to her teenage years. In a 2021 interview, she told The Face she slipped her “first disc when I was 15 from sneezing.” Adele also told the publication that she had “been in pain” with her back for around half of her life. She notes that it would “flare up” when she was stressed or sitting with bad posture. But that changed when she started regularly working out.
The Weekends With Adele residency has just seen its 24th weekend. The award-winning singer extended her residency in Sin City with 34 more shows that run through November 4.
