This is the first time that Gaga has publically acknowledged the condition.
Her battle with fibromyalgia will be documented in her new documentary set to land on Netflix on September 22.
In the trailer, the star can be seen wincing in pain as a doctor tends to her shoulder.
Fans first started speculating about Gaga's health last year when she posted a photo on Instagram with the caption:
"Having a frustrating day with chronic pain, but I find myself feeling so blessed to have such strong intelligent female doctors. I think about Joanne too and her strength and the day gets a little easier."

Having a frustrating day with chronic pain, but I find myself feeling so blessed to have such strong intelligent female doctors. I think about Joanne too and her strength and the day gets a little easier. Plus I got @wanaynay by my side. "Hey Girl, we can make it easy if we lift each other." 🌸
The singer was also forced to cancel several tour dates in 2013 due to joint inflammation.
Gaga: Five Foot Two premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday.
