Hadid mentioned “Every day I feel at least 10 of these attributes without fail … since I was probably 14, but more aggressively when I turned 18” ; as she drew arrows to point out nearly 30 typical signs that she encounters. These symptoms include headaches, brain fog, insomnia and light and noise sensitivity. She also reported as influencing her anxiety , depression, nausea, disordered eating, joint pain, and weight gain and loss.
She further shared a screenshot of Kalla’s post about the frustrations of coping with Lyme disease; calling it a “constant minefield that keeps on giving.”
The model has been battling with her illness for quite a while now. In 2016, the star opened up about battling Lyme disease when working as a model when Hadid was 20.
Hadid ‘s mother Yolanda also has Lyme disease. She said it can often “send you to your knees” at the 2016 Global Lyme Alliance gala event as the extreme symptoms.
