Iggy Azalea has revealed that she has been diagnosed with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ).

The rapper has now resolved to avoid drama to prevent her condition from becoming worse, taking to Twitter to update her followers.

Azalea, who released her debut album The New Classic last year, said that she will take better care of herself in 2015 and try to avoid stress.

“I’m gonna make more of an effort to take care of myself in 2015, stay away from all the drama & hopefully not have any flair ups,” she said.

“Also last month I was diagnosed with TMJ which isn’t the best.”

She added that she thinks her condition may have been exacerbated by stress and wrote that medicine does not always help people to deal with such things.

“I don’t think western medicine all the way acknowledges what a huge toll mental stress takes on our bodies,” she wrote. “But I do believe it is a factor.

“Anyhow I don’t think it will ever prevent me from doing anything I want to but it has made me realise it’s important to look after yourself.”

The Australian also revealed that she is planning to start work on her second album next week, writing: “I’m back to work on my second album next week… Anxious to get going on it. The excited kind of anxious.”

TMJ is a disorder affecting the muscles and nerves surrounding the jaw, causing pain and restricted movement, with stress thought to be a major contributing factor.

Azalea has been embroiled in a feud with fellow rapper Azealia Banks recently, after Banks accused Azalea of being ignorant about black issues in hip-hop.
