Travis Barker has revealed he recently had ‘an episode of trigeminal neuralgia’.
The condition, described as being ‘severely’ painful by the NHS, is caused by the compression of the trigeminal nerve and leads to facial pain so bad it feels like ‘having an electric shock in the jaw’.
Blink 182 star Travis, who is married to pregnant Kourtney Kardashian, spoke about his heath on Twitter on Friday.
The 47-year-old wrote: ‘Last week I had covid, an episode of trigeminal neuralgia, and a root canal.’
He added: ‘Which means I can pretty much handle anything god throws at me.’
Doting dad Travis recently confirmed he had tested positive for COVID amid his band’s European tour.
In his new social media update, the musician also touched upon his fear of flying, saying: ‘I still hate flying.
‘I love touring and playing music but I unfortunately associate traveling and flying with death.’
He also noted: I am strong and nothing can keep me from living life though.’
The drummer was involved in a plane crash in 2008 that left him with burns on 65% of his body.
The plane’s pilot Sarah Lemmon and co-pilot James Bland died along with Travis’ assistant Chris Baker.
Back in July, Travis told fans he’d flown for the 30th time since the devastating accident.
Meanwhile, Travis was forced to halt Blink-182 UK dates in Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin earlier this month after he rushed home for an ‘urgent family matter.’
It was later revealed Travis’ wife, 44-year-old Kourtney – who is pregnant with their child – had to undergo emergency fetal surgery.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said she was ‘forever grateful’ to the doctors who saved their baby’s life.
