    During the New Year's Eve show at her Las Vegas residency, Adele told the audience she was dealing with sciatica.

    Sciatica is a condition that causes intense pain along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back through the hips and down each leg.

    While having difficulty walking across the stage, Adele opened up about dealing with the pain.

    "I have to waddle these days as I have really bad sciatica," Adele explained while shooting T-shirts into the audience.

    This isn't the first time the singer has opened up about her struggle with back pain either. She previously suffered from two slipped discs.

    She says she first slipped a disc as a teenager when she sneezed hard enough to do some serious damage and then hurt her back again in early 2021.

    "I've been in pain with my back for, like, half of my life, really," Adele shared with The Face. "It flares up, normally due to stress or from a stupid bit of posture."

    Thankfully, Adele says she's been able to find some relief, particularly when she started working on strengthening her core muscles.

    Despite the pain, Adele is pushing onwards with her Las Vegas residency, which is set to run through March of this year.
