I’m heartbroken by this. My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months, and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words. Now, I have to focus on getting better… I want to get through this as soon as I can. - Celine xx… https://t.co/cEDLQt9HDg

@celinedion Aw, hope things get better for you soon. Your health must come first, always. Just focus on yourself & your recovery👌, take care, xx
@celinedion Maybe you've got a magnesium deficiency, as the main symptom of a magnesium deficiency are muscle cramps. You need to eat more/better (biological) food or take a magnesium supplement.
