Lewis Capaldi has said that he is quite relieved that he has Tourette's Syndrome, revealing that he was worried that he might have had a degenerative disease.

The Scottish singer has said during a recent interview that he has received botox treatment in his shoulder to control his tics, following his diagnosis. 

"I have Tourette’s. I’ve always had that apparently… so I do a shoulder twitch quite a lot", Capaldi spoke during Instagram live. 

He also felt it was important to speak about his diagnosis as, he noticed fans were worried that he was using cocaine. 

"Do you think before I play to 20,000 people as an anxious person I’m going to take a big line of cocaine? Never going to happen", he said. 

But the Someone You Love singer also revealed that when the doctors told him of his diagnosis, it "made so much sense". 

"When I look back at my interviews from like 2018, I can see that I’m doing it", he said. "But it comes and goes. I’ll go sometimes months without doing it". 

"I thought I had some horrible degenerative disease so I’ll take Tourette’s", he added. 

Capaldi also told his fans that "some days it’s more painful than others", and it "looks a lot worse than it is".

While the condition can be frustrating, Capaldi also stated that "The worst thing about it is when I’m excited I get it, when I’m stressed I get it, when I’m happy I have it". 

Lewis Capaldi is releasing his latest single Forget Me  with a new album on the horizon. The new track is coming out this Friday.
