Missy Elliott Diagnosed With Graves Disease

Missy Elliot was consistently at the forefront of hip-hop for nearly a decade but has taken a pretty substantial break from rap. Talking with People Magazine, b/w of Rap Radar, it's becoming clear why:

“I was [driving and] trying to put my foot on the brake, but my leg was jumping. I couldn’t keep the breakdown and almost crashed. I couldn’t write because my nervous system was so bad–I couldn’t even use a pen. I’m 30 pounds lighter because I’ve been exercising.” Elliott continues. “My thyroid is functioning, so I haven’t had to take medication in about nine months. [But] you live with it for the rest of your life.”
