Infuriating: Halsey defended themself from hateful comments about their appearance, just one week after revealing multiple health diagnoses

The three-time Grammy nominee revealed she's suffering from four different health conditions - Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjögren's syndrome, Mast Cell Activation syndrome, and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of 13 hereditary disorders of connective tissue that affect your connective tissues - primarily your skin, joints, and blood vessel walls.

Symptoms include pain, fatigue, overly flexible joints, and fragile/stretchy skin.

Sjögren's syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease that causes extensive dryness and can cause fatigue, chronic pain, dysfunction of organs, neuropathies, and lymphomas.

Mast Cell Activation syndrome is a condition that causes increased risk of suffering Anaphylaxis (a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction).

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia is a disorder where most of your blood stays in your lower body when you stand up, and in response, your heart rate jumps and your blood pressure lowers.

The singer's dramatic diagnosis came after she was hospitalized with Anaphylaxis 'a few times' and saw '100K doctors' to help uncover the cause of their chronic illness.

'Obviously, my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and gave birth and I started getting really, really, really sick. I've been kind of sick pretty much my whole adult life, but it started getting bad,' Halsey - who boasts 68.7M social media followers - admitted via Instastory.

'I'm still looking for answers to the root cause of some of these things. They could potentially be another form of autoimmune disease. And I've known I've had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially having endometriosis. It's kind of been exacerbated since having [my nine-month-old son Ender Ridley Aydin].'

The New Jersey native added: 'I'm keeping you guys updated because I know you're seeing the heart monitor and I'm sick all the time and I don't want anybody to be worrying. I'm on a treatment plan right now.'

Halsey (born Ashley Frangipane) already suffered from bipolar disorder and ADHD when their body started 'rebelling against me a little bit.'
