tyDi also took to his Facebook page to share a more detailed update on his medical situation.
"About 4 days ago I started to get 'pins and needles' in my hands and feet, very rapidly they went completely numb," reads the post. "In days I couldn't feel my limbs. My condition could only be explained by a catastrophic neurological emergency. In a panic I was given enough MRI's to kill a mouse; and we found something in my neck causing damage to my nervous system."
TyDi did state in a Twitter response that doctors have ruled out neuropathy via an MRI, citing that it could be a "very, very rare reaction to the vaccine."
TyDi launched his career after he signed with Armin van Buuren's Armada label at the age of 17. He released numerous albums prior to his chart-topping Redefined LP in 2014. The titular track became the #1 dance airplay record in the U.S. and reached #9 on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart.
