Due to her illness, the singer was constantly worried about falling off a stage After being struck by a tick while horse riding in 2003, five-time Grammy winner Shania Twain feared falling off the stage.

The symptoms I experienced before I was diagnosed were quite frightening because I was dizzy on stage before I was diagnosed. Twain said, 'I was losing my balance and was afraid I would fall off the stage.'.

During her $87 million-grossing, 113-date Up! tour, she was ill with the disease. In her new documentary 'Not Just a Girl, she discussed the illness.

“My blackouts happened every minute or 30 seconds, but they were very, very, very milliseconds long.”

A chronic illness contributed to the singer's development of dysphonia, which led to throat surgery and therapy.

She said: 'I never heard my voice the same way again.'. It seemed like my voice had disappeared forever. It seemed as though I would never, ever sing again.'

Additionally, the singer was going through a divorce at the time of her struggle

This August, she will celebrate the 21st birthday of her son Eja D'Angelo, who she shares with Grammy-winning producer Robert 'Mutt' Lange.

Shania and Mutt's 14-year marriage ended in 2008 after she discovered Mutt's affair with Marie-Anne Thiebaud, her long-term secretary.

At the age of 22, the singer lost her parents in a car crash when she was 22.
