Mike Tyson opens up about having nerve condition called Sciatica


New Delhi: The former world heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, has revealed that he is suffering from Sciatica, a nerve-impacting condition causing pain in the lower back and leg. Months ago, he was seen sitting in a wheelchair and holding a walking stick at Miami International Airport. Talking to Newsmax TV, the former boxer revealed about his condition.

He shared that he is suffering from Sciatica, which sometimes makes him unable to talk. Tyson said, “I have sciatica every now and then, it flares up. When it flares up, I can’t even talk. Thank god, it’s the only health problem I have. I am splendid now. Everybody in my house is truly blessed and we are all very grateful for whatever we have.”
