So the first thing I do when I wake up is check my phone while i’m doing my business. Much like the rest of you I just found out this morning that Ozzy Osbourne has revealed his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. After some health issues last year last year and cancelled tour dates, the Ozzy admits it’s one of his worst spans of his life, which is really saying something considering what Ozzy has been through over the years.
“It was the worst, longest, most painful, miserable year of my life,” Ozzy shared with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America, talking about the fall in his home that forced him into surgery.
“It’s been terribly challenging for us all,” Osbourne added. “I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”
Ozzy’s then went on to reveal for the first time that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
“I got a numbness down this arm for the surgery, my legs keep going cold,” he explained. “I don’t know if that’s the Parkinson’s or what, you know, but that’s the problem. Because they cut nerves when they did the surgery. I’d never heard of nerve pain, and it’s a weird feeling.”
“There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s,” Sharon says. “It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

“I’m no good with secrets,” Ozzy told Good Morning America. “I cannot walk around with it anymore ’cause it’s like I’m running out of excuses, you know?” “I’m a lot better now than I was last February. I was in a shocking state.”
Osbourne is undergoing treatment and taking medication and even seeking doctor’s advice outside of the US. In April they plan to see a doctor in Switzerland who specializes in this and boosting your immune system.
On February 21, Ozzy Osbourne will release Ordinary Man, his first album in 10 years.
