Shania Twain talks about fighting Lyme disease.

Shania Twain spoke candidly about her battle against Lyme disease in a new Netflix documentary called Not Just A Girl.

Twain had previously revealed that he contracted bacteria from a tick bite while riding a horse in Norfolk, Virginia in 2003.

The infection caused the country superstar to suffer nerve damage to his vocal cords. She temporarily lost her voice, but she feared that she would never be able to perform again.

Twain said in her latest rock documentary, ‘Before being diagnosed, I was very dizzy when I was on stage, so the symptoms were very scary. I was losing my balance and I was afraid of falling off the stage.’

The 56-year-old singer added: ‘I was going through very, very, very, very thousandth of a second power outage, but on a regular basis, every minute or every 30 seconds.’

The queen of country pop went further, admitting that ‘my voice wasn’t what it used to be’.

Then Twain said, ‘I thought I’d lose my voice forever. I thought so [and] I will never, never sing again.’

The You’re Still One hitmaker underwent several invasive throat surgeries after suffering from dysphonia.

In an interview with Extra in 2019, Twain said, ‘I had to undergo a very intensive surgery that required pharyngeal surgery, which is very different from vocal cord surgery. It was really, really, really tough and I survived because I had to have two of them. That is, emotionally, I survived and I am ready to move on.’

Shania Twain goes into detail after finding out that her husband was cheating on her.

She said in the documentary, ‘I was on the verge of divorce to determine the cause of my lack of control over my voice and the change in my voice. Her husband is leaving me to another woman.’

Twain went on to say, ‘Now I’m in a completely different state. And I don’t think there’s any point in continuing a music career.’

Under strange circumstances, she began sharing her grief with Marie-Anne’s ex-husband Frédéric Thiébaud in 2010. They tied the knot a year later.
