There are so many reasons you shouldn't try to diagnose yourself with the help of Google because you will probably end up scaring yourself with the worst-case scenarios.
And Vivian Hsu can totally attest to that. After returning to Taiwan, she’s dived headfirst into work — not only is she promoting her new album, I’m V, she’s also been doing promo for two movies, The Confidence Man JP: Princess and Little Big Women.
Her hectic schedule means she only gets about five hours of sleep a day, which has caused her tinnitus (ringing in your ears) to worsen. It’s gotten so bad that she sometimes get dizzy while at work.
Concerned about her health, the 45-year-old checked out her symptoms online and was horrified to find out that they could point to an ear stroke (also known as sudden sensorineural hearing loss), vertigo or even nasopharyngeal cancer aka nose cancer.
Fearing for the worst, Vivian visited four doctors and was relieved to find out that her symptoms were caused by fatigue. She was advised to get more rest, and has since changed her schedule so that she is able to turn in at an earlier time every night.
Another piece of good news that Vivian had to share is that her Singapore-based husband, businessman Sean Lee, has come to visit her in Taiwan and is currently serving his mandatory 14-day quarantine. He made the trip in hopes that he would be able to attend the premiere of Little Big Women.
Although he was ultimately unable to make it to the gala, she’s glad that she will be able to spend some time with him. The actress shared, “He missed us, which is why he came to Taiwan. I flew over to Singapore [earlier this year], and he offered to make the trip this time around. This is how we give and take as a couple.”
