Bella Hadid is sharing the “truth” about her Lyme disease symptoms.

On Tuesday, the 23-year-old model opened up about battling Lyme disease daily, explaining to her followers on her Instagram Story what she typically experiences because of the “invisible” illness. Hadid re-posted diagrams and infographics about Lyme disease shared by chef Joudie Kalla’s Palestine on a Plate Instagram account.

Hadid, on one slide, drew arrows to point out nearly 30 common symptoms she faces, including headaches, brain fog, insomnia, and a sensitivity to light and noise. She also flagged anxiety, confusion, nausea, disordered eating, joint pain, and weight gain and loss as affecting her too.

“Every day I feel at least 10 of these attributes without fail … since I was probably 14, but more aggressively when I turned 18,” wrote Hadid.  (See link for article)
