According to the series of videos he posted on Instagram, he told his fans that he woke up one morning and was unable to feel his left leg. He stated,

Hi guys, it’s August. As you can probably tell, I’m in the hospital. So, here’s the stitch. I woke up one day and wasn’t able to walk. I couldn’t feel my legs and my doctor ended up admitting me into the hospital. We’re doing a bunch of tests and they’re saying I have some nerve damage going on throughout my body. It’s like my immune system went on vacation. So, I’m just waiting on it to come back and we can get together and it can do what it do, man.”

Iā€™m here with the stitch & to also apologize for not being able to make the essence fest gig last night. I take my career & your time very seriously & the fact that you guys show up for me, endlessly. Means the world!Iā€™m man down right now, & figured I should share that my auto immune disease is raging, but im fighting this thing & on my mission to shake back & be able to make it up to you.”

As some of you may know, Alsina has struggled with health issues in the past, having several seizures and being comatose for a few days after collapsing on stage in 2014. However, things for the singer only got worse over the years with him having to get surgery after going blind in his left eye and losing his vision in his right and later his autoimmune disease diagnosis.
