Medical professionals are working quickly to find the correct procedure and reverse tyDi's symptoms so he can gain his motor skills back.

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. 

In 2018, tyDi teamed up with Grammy-winning video game and film composer Christopher Tin for "Closing In" ahead of his sixth studio album, Collide sends well wishes to tyDi and his family during this extremely difficult time.
