Fibromyalgia can cause extreme fatigue, sleep disturbances, depression and headaches, CNN reported.

Gaga: Five Foot Two which is set to arrive on Netflix on Sept. 22, will give fans an inside look at Gaga's life and career. A trailer released recently, featured the 31-year-old dealing with health issues and visiting a doctor's office.

"It's hard," Gaga said Friday at the Toronto International Film Festival, about discussing her chronic illness, Variety reported. "But it's liberating too."

Also in September, Gaga canceled a show in Montreal stating that she got sick after singing in the rain during a previous performance.
