Singer ANNIE LENNOX has cancelled a performance at a United Nations (U.N.) event in Switzerland after foot pain left her unable to travel.
The former Eurythmics star was due to appear at the Nansen Refugee Award Ceremony in Geneva yesterday, but she has now pulled out of the commitment due to "an ongoing issue" with her left foot which has left her in terrible pain.
Lennox explains in a post on her Facebook.com page, "Sometimes I get searing electrical shocks flashing through the nerve endings. It's the kind of pain that makes you stop in your tracks. I'm sure that some of you will know what that's like. It rendered me unfit to travel, so I'm not able to fulfil my performance at the Nansen Refugee Awards tonight, which is hugely disappointing..."
Lennox insists she is resting up and hopes to be back at work very soon.
Sounds to me like she has a neuroma. A pinched nerve in your foot can be extrememly painful and make you unable to perform especially if your job includes dancing.
