Paula Reveals Her Neck Pain Hell

May 21st, 2003

by Contact Music

TV talent show AMERICAN IDOL has helped bring judge PAULA ABDUL back from a painful hell that left her virtually crippled for six years.

The pop star-turned-TV host ruptured discs in her neck and spent days at a time trying to cope with excruciating pain as it spread around her body.

She says, "The pain was so aggressive that it takes your breath away. It makes your teeth start chattering because it's so uncomfortable.

"They could give me pain pills that would put a 300 pound (136 kilogram) man out, and there were no answers.

"It was bone on bone on bone and it was causing me to have partial paralysis. I was losing all ability to feel down my right side and it then started radiating through my lower back and into my hip."

But the unexpected opportunity to judge American Idol gave Abdul the strength she needed to beat her painful condition.

She explains, "I went in and out of surgeries and then I just went, 'Please let this work because I'm going to take a job called American Idol and I deserve this job.'"
