Amy Winehouse Diagnosed with Emphysema
After her fainting spell on June 16, doctors weren't too sure what has happened to Amy Winehouse. Finding an irregular heartbeat, doctors mulled over trying to find out what she's got, including testing her for TB (which came out negative). But after all the tests, she's finally been diagnosed with emphysema. It's a progressive disease that causes its sufferers to experience difficulties in breathing. In an interview with the Sunday Mirror, Amy's dad, Mitch Winehouse, he fears his daughter will end up in a wheelchair and hooked up to an oxygen tank if she doesn't stop her smoking and cocaine use. Let's hope after all of this, Miss Winehouse will get her act together once and for all, especially since she's got one set of amazing pipes.
