is opening up about an illness that he has been grappling with for over a year — and doctors still aren’t 100 percent sure what it is.
Thestar, 43, opened up on his Instagram account with wife fiancée this week in a lengthy video where the couple shares the details about Scott’s health struggle over the past 14 months.
In, Scott and Belle recall being overwhelmed at first by his symptoms — extreme sensitivity to temperatures over 70 degrees, having to stay in bed for days and more — to the point where the home renovation pro thought he was on the edge of death.
Singer August Alsina Reveals He's Been Hospitalized After Losing the Ability to Walk
August Alsina Hospitalized After Losing the Ability to Walk . Alsina, 26, revealed the concerning news on Instagram Monday, sharing a video of himself lying in a hospital bed. “Hi guys, it’s August,” he began in the clip. “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,” he continued. The singer shared “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.
After having multiple MRIs, Scott says, “What [doctors] thought it was, was. But “after months and months,” his two neurologists instead thought he “had two brain aneurysms.”
After a follow-up visit with a neurosurgeon, though, the couple learned it could actually be “a new pathway [that] had formed” in his brain — something not uncommon or necessarily life-threatening, according to the neurosurgeon.
The radiologist Scott met with next was “99.9 percent sure” he wasn’t suffering from an aneurysm, which made the
“The MRIs were quick, but every appointment with a specialist took at least a month, if not several, to get in,” Belle shares of the grueling process.

Meanwhile, Scott was having trouble participating in activities he used to do with no issue. Thea trip they took to a casino for Belle’s 30th birthday in September that was “too much,” she says.
“Walking too much would bring on the symptoms. Heat would bring on the symptoms,” Scott shares. “So I was very limited in what I could do. But as long as I was within an area that I could control, I could actually do things.”

Another symptom thestar describes was a “crawly feeling” in his head — something a neurologist pointed to, after more tests, as a potential side effect of a “pretty rare” condition called a nummular headache, which Scott took medicine to treat specifically.
“He said to me, ‘It is possible that you’re not suffering from one thing, that it’s a few things that are culminating into these symptoms,’ ” Scott says, explaining that the medications he took didn’t help with the heat sensitivity but did treat that particular feeling in his head.
Brothers arrested in connection with Sunday St. Pete shooting
ST. PETERSBURG — Police have arrested two brothers in connection with a Sunday afternoon shooting that sent one man to the hospital with critical injuries. Police said 38-year-old Antonio Ruffin is the man seen on a surveillance video firing several shots in a Food Max parking lot at 1400 18th Ave S. PREVIOUS COVERAGE: Police: Man shot outside St. Petersburg convenience store Darrell Simmons Jr., 31, was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. He was listed in critical, but stable condition Sunday. Ruffin and his brother, 36-year-old Eric Ruffin, were arrested Monday evening. Police believe Simmons was arguing with the brothers before the shooting.
Eventually, Scott visited, a functional physician looking at both western and holistic medicine.
Dr. Jacobson agreed it was likely many issues working together — and tests he ran found an infection that showed Scott’s body was reacting in the way it might to an autoimmune disease, with his antibodies “through the roof.”
After beginning antibiotics about a month ago,wheat, dairy, soy, gluten and sugar, Scott says he started to feel somewhat better after less than a week.

But despite the good news about finding medicines and lifestyle changes that would help ease his symptoms, Scott can’t help but get emotional about the toll the journey has taken on him, admitting before fighting back tears, “I was pretty sure I was dying.”
It’s still a process and he is by no means “cured” (he even tells fans he has felt “like a bubble boy” over the past year), but “I felt at times, recently, like I did before this all started over a year ago,” Scott says, advising others to “try every avenue” if they have questions about their own health.
Search for 2 missing brothers zeroes in on Braymer property
The search for two missing brothers from Wisconsin has zeroed in on a 78-acre property outside Braymer. Nick and Justin Diemel, 35 and 24 years old, have not been heard from since Sunday. "We don't know what's going on. There are a lot of things that don't add up, and obviously very, very concerned about it," said Rob Krull, the brothers' cousin. "We knew something was up when they weren't answering their phones after a couple of hours." Krull drove down Sunday with another cousin and an employee of the livestock company to help. "We need answers. Family needs answers. He's got four kids at home and a wife," Rob Chupp said.
The couple — who— also say that there were “a lot of people in [their] life that kind of faded away,” perhaps because they weren’t sure how to approach the subject with them. And, as Belle puts it, many people acted like Scott was being “dramatic” with his symptoms.
“A lot of people just haven’t checked in and they know how bad it is. It’s felt kind of lonely,” says Belle, with Scott adding, “Not having the friends that you normally have is not fun.”
But they are thankful for the support they have received from “some really good people who have checked in a lot and helped out,” Scott says, and they continue.
As he tells his fans, “I appreciate all of you. We’re getting there. Lots of good stuff to come.”
