Praying For Lady Of Rage: She Reveals Horrific Illness & The Damage It’s Caused Her

It was exactly one 7 months ago that rap legend, Lady of Rage first revealed she was hospitalized for a then unknown illness in January 2018. Though her illness was unknown at that time, it was evident that it was serious. Fast forward to now and she has just revealed she’s hospitalized again after a horrific fall she took as a result of her illness. She also revealed she’s been battling this since last year.

Lady Of Rage’s Heartbreaking Message About Her Health
In an emotional Instagram post, the typically private Rage opened up with her fans about the physical damage her mystery illness has caused her and why the doctors are referring to her as a “medical mystery.”

Rage explains her confusion after doctors’ multiple diagnosis:

Lady of Rage: “I know a lot of people have been wondering what’s going on with me in regards 2 my health, well today I will let y’all know what I know. Since Sept. 2017 I have been going back & forth to doctors & specialists for what started out as shortness of breath. Within that time I’ve been hospitalized 5 times. Initially pneumonia was the diagnosis. Then I was told pneumonitis, to “we think you have lupus or sarcoidosis”, to “you’re depressed ” take this prozac…fibromyalgia, sjorgens syndrome and idiopathic interstitial lung disease with fibrosis, which means the lungs are progressively being scarred & they don’t know why. That’s a lot, from 1 day you’re good, to the next day you’re not!”

The dangerous medical emergency that damaged her eye, just before performing with former Death Row labelmate:

LOR: “My last performance was in Atlanta at the Queens of Hip Hop and thanks to my brother @dazdillinger we pulled it off! July 6th I was scheduled to perform at the Essence Fest & was very excited because this would have been my first time. As I walked in to the hotel I was cool. By the time I got to the counter I knew something was wrong! I asked for some water, and the next thing I know, I’m hearing someone say, “don’t move, and don’t touch your eye”! I had blacked out and fell face first into a cast iron frame at the front desk! Blacking out is called syncope, and this was my 3rd & most damaging time! So as a result of that, I received 9 stitches, a fractured eye orbit, & fractured the side of my nose. Missed out on performing at Essence with @therealdougefresh and Summertime in the LBC with @snoopdogg 😡 Stayed in the hospital for 6 days,because the doctors are trying to find the reason for the syncope. Nothing was found. Previous, to current test showed nothing besides the fibrosis. One of the staff said “You’re a medical mystery”…well this mystery needs to be solved is what I’m thinking!!”

Where her health stands now & her thank-you to fans:

LOR: “So as it stands, I’m trying to find the proper diagnosis and the proper treatment. For those of you who pray for me, please continue to do so. For those of you who send me well wishes, please continue to do so. I’m kind of a private person, revealing this is a big step for me. So there it is …& as always Thank you to those who have been there & continue to be there.❤”

In case y’all missed our prior report, in January, the “Friday” actress was overwhelmed by the amount of love fans and friends had shown her after her homegirl/rapper, Yo Yo shared that she was hospitalized battling a serious illness:
