Britney Spears revealed on Sunday (Nov. 6) that despite the slick moves in her fan-favorite dance videos she is suffering from a physical pain on an almost daily basis due to nerve damage. “I’m dancing in time now Victoria … yes … nerve damage on the right side of my body … there’s no cure except God I guess … nerve damage is caused sometimes when you don’t get enough oxygen to your brain,” she wrote alongside a clip in which she’s dancing to Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” while rocking a red crop top and black shorts.

While Spears, 40, did not specify what caused the nerve damage or what she described as a brain oxygenation issue, she did try to explain to her followers how it manifest. “Your brain literally shuts down,” she wrote of the dire consequences of not getting enough oxygen to your brain. “In that place I didn’t breathe when I was there … nerve damage causes parts of your body to go numb.

Spears — who is one week away from the one-year anniversary of the end of her restrictive 13-year conservatorship — said hopefully that she is getting “a lot better, I can breathe … I feel smarter because well, Jesus I can breathe now … either way, I’m breathing now and I can dance in time.”
