Robbie Williams Has Been Suffering From A Mystery Illness!

| Filed under: Robbie Williams


Robbie Williams recently revealed that he recently discovered that he has been suffering from an undisclosed illness that caused him to feel constantly lethargic and depressed - to the extent that he just thought that's how he was!

He reveals:

"I was lethargic and depressed and I thought I was lethargic and depressed as a person. I thought that was my make up. I found out a few months ago that I'd been ill, completely by mistake and I don't want to go into the whys and wherefores but what I had makes you lethargic and makes you depressed and I'd had it for years and not known and I'm on treatment for it. It's changed my life."

Oh, goodness! This is why you need to get things checked out, bb!

We wonder what he had for that long with just those symptoms?! Hepatitis? Lyme disease?

Doesn't matter, though! We're glad you caught it, whatever it is!

    Thyroid disease.

  2. 2

    They call it depression.

  3. 3

    If its some mystery illness that he has suffered for years from then why not say what it is obviously its something that is not diagnosed that often, maybe with him coming out with more details he could help others, whats with the mystery, wonder if he has something to hide.

  4. 4

    Yea glad you got the help you needed but why not try to help others knowing what you've gone thru

  5. 5

    chronic fatigue syndrome

  6. 6

    I totally agree with bobo. I felt the same way for years and last year was diagnosed with Hashimoto's. its a thyroid condition.

  7. 7

    God he is so freaking cute.

  8. 8

    Agree that it's probably hypothyroidism. I have it and before I was diagnosed, terribly lethargic, depressed, in a fog most of the time.

  9. 9

    hypothyroidism, ie underactive thyroid!no doubt

  10. 10

    So then why didn't he take care of himself like he should a long time ago. If he doesnt want everyone to know what kind of illness he had he should of never said anything about it in the first place next time he goes to the doctor he should keep it to himself

  11. 11

    Colon disease

  12. 12

    I didn't know that thinly concealed homosexuality was considered a disease.

  13. 13

    it could have been a low testosterone level

  14. 14

    Glad he's getting treatment and feeling better. I wish he'd say what it was, I've had the same symptoms and have just always thought "this is how I am as a person". If it was found unexpectedly, it must mean it's a difficult diagnosis so it'd be nice to know to tell the doctors what to look for.

  15. 15

    Same thing happened to me.

    Wow, Bobo nailed it on the first post..definitely thyroid disease

  18. 18

    I think he suffering from old age.

  19. 19

    I bet it was Hemochromatosis, look it up I have it and those were my symptoms as well, Iron overload in the blood, cured by multiple phlebotomies

  20. 20

    or it could be b12 deficiency …. I had that and it presents a lot like thyroid disease but not really and its two main symptoms are depression and extreme fatigue … all it means is the body doesn't produce enough red blood cells kind of like anemia

  21. 21

    Along with what other people mentioned, Fibromayalgia came to mind. I agree that he should say what it is. It could help other people out.

    It was Candida. He basically had an internal fungal infection. It was also responsible for his alcohol dependancy issues. It's possible a little embarrassing to talk about.

  23. 23

    old age?

  24. 24

    Erectile dysfunction?

  25. 25

    It's called Attention Seeking Disorder. It's where you mention something but can't give any detail on, but will cause infectious sympathy in others - think it's a branch off Munchausen's.

  26. 26

    Since he won't name it, I'm sure it's Hepatitis.

  27. 27

    not sure but betting it has something to do with his crappy music

  28. 28

    Hm, I heard about this story. Curious….

  29. 29

    I've just gone throught the EXACT SAME THING and it is HYPOTHYROIDISM!

    Love Robbie BTW ;)

    It's likely something that would effect his future with insurance so he's keeping mum. It could be chronic fatigue syndrome/Epstein-Barr (from a past case of mono) or hypothyroidism, or depression–any number of things…

  32. 32

    Celiac Disease?

  33. 33

    The 'illness' was having loads of money, zero talent and an insatiable appetite for persian rugs. I'd say he still suffers from that as suggested when he recently forgot the lyrics to his own song and had to check a notebook half way through the performance! He's a wreck at the moment but the people who make money from him only care about their $$$$$'s.

  34. 34

    hypothyroidism or maybe he's a celiac….malnutrion makes you depressed too. I feel a SHITTON better after 6 months of avoiding wheat/gluten. Either way, hope he's going to be OK!

    Re: ChaseyLane – because its non of your fucking business thats why

  36. 36

    the mystery disease is called, " crazyface syndrome"
