Halsey has released a series of Instagram stories explaining that since they have given birth they are "allergic to literally everything", and receiving several diagnoses since July.

"Obviously my health has changed a lot since I got pregnant and giving birth," they said. "I started getting really, really, really sick."

Last year, Halsey and their partner Alev Aydi, welcomed their son Ender into the world. Halsey has been very real about their struggles with endometriosis, and even performing through a miscarriage.

The recording artist who was born in Edison and graduated from Warren Hills Regional High School in Warren County uses she/they pronouns.

In Halsey's 2020 song "More," they really opened up singing, "Feelin' so incomplete/ Wonder will we ever meet?/ And would you know it right away/ How hard I try to see your face?"

Now after happily welcoming their long-awaited son Ender, they are facing some serious diagnoses.

Halsey shares in their Instagram stories, "I was hospitalized for anaphylaxis a few times and had some other stuff going on. Basically, after seeing like 100,000 doctors, I got diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjogren's syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome)."

Halsey has been wearing a heart monitor and they said that they're still looking for the "root cause of some of these things."

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome "is a group of inherited disorders that affect your connective tissues — primarily your skin, joints and blood vessel walls" according to the Mayo Clinic.

Sjogren's syndrome is a disorder of the immune system. The body attacks the glands that make tears and saliva. It can also damage other parts of the body, including the joints, thyroid, kidneys, liver, lungs, skin and nerves according to the Mayo Clinic.

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) "is a condition in which the mast cells in your body release too much of a substance that causes allergy symptoms" according to Healthline. Mast cells are also part of your immune system.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) is a condition that affects blood flow. Symptoms include lightheadedness, fainting and rapid increase in heart rate.

"It could be potentially another autoimmune disease, and I've known I've had autoimmune issues for most of my life, especially having endometriosis, but it's kind of been exacerbated since I had Ender," Halsey said on Instagram.

Halsey told fans not to worry, and that they are on a treatment plan, still rehearsing for tour and they said "I'm really excited and I'm really confident that I'll be able to do it in a way that's healthy where I can perform my best for all of you."

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey

A trip to New Jersey doesn't have to be all about the beach. Our state has some incredible trails, waterfalls, and lakes to enjoy.

From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to the hidden gems of New Jersey, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is such a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it's a great workout.

Before you go out on the trails and explore some of our listeners' suggestions, I have some tips on hiking etiquette from the American Hiking Society.

If you are going downhill and run into an uphill hiker, step to the side and give the uphill hiker space. A hiker going uphill has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.

Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless they are marked as an official trail, steer clear of them. By going off-trail you may cause damage to the ecosystems around the trail, the plants, and wildlife that live there.

You also do not want to disturb the wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.

Bicyclists should yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also yield to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you will encounter on the trails in New Jersey.
If you are thinking of bringing your dog on your hike, they should be leashed, and make sure to clean up all pet waste.

Lastly, be mindful of the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it's probably best to save your hike for another day.
