Britney Spears had been enthralling her fans with her newfound freedom in recent months, despite the horrors of her years-long conservatorship.

To include others, the pop star posted videos of herself dancing to whatever song she was feeling at the time. Spears is letting her childhood self enjoy and dance away her inhibitions, whether naked or in her favorite underwear.

While many appeared to believe that her excessive dancing on social media indicated erratic behavior, her recent explanation finally answered one of the internet’s most burning questions.

In a recent video, Spears wears a red-sleeved crop top and skimpy black shorts. Spears danced barefoot to Foster the People’s biggest hit, “Pumped Up Kicks.”

The pop star, now 40, is twirling and dancing to the upbeat yet disturbing song about a school shooting. However, the highlight of her post was her lengthy caption contextualizing the reason for her dance videos.

Britney Spears’ health appears to be jeopardized due to nerve damage.

She shared:

“I’m dancing in time now Victoria … yes … nerve damage on the right side of my body … there’s no cure except God I guess … nerve damage is caused sometimes when you don’t get enough oxygen to your brain … your brain literally shuts down, nerve damage causes parts of your body to go numb. I wake up like 3 times a week in bed and my hands are completely numb … nerves are tiny and it feels like pins and needles from the right side of my body it shoots up to my neck and the part that hurts the worst is my temple on my head … it stings and it’s scary … the last 3 years since I got out of that place I’ve been in a mild unconscious state … I couldn’t face it.”

According to Coastal Empire Orthopedics, nerve damage occurs when the nerves cannot carry the correct signals from the brain to the spinal cord. The symptoms of the illness are also similar to those listed by Spears in her lengthy Instagram post.

In happier news, Spears remains upbeat because dancing relieves her pain; this explains why she posts videos of herself dancing on social media.

Spears said:

“I’ve done a good job trying to pull it off. Either way I’m getting a lot better, I can breathe … I feel smarter because well, Jesus I can breathe now … either way, I’m breathing now and I can dance in time, Victoria.”
