Travis Barker is sharing more about his health with fans.

After revealing that he had tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 22, the Blink-182 drummer, 47, shared a couple of updates regarding his health and well-being on X (formerly known as Twitter).

On Friday, Barker wrote a post on X where he revealed that as well as having had COVID last week, he also had "an episode of trigeminal neuralgia, and a root canal. Which means I can pretty much handle anything god throws at me.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, trigeminal neuralgia is “a condition that causes painful sensations similar to an electric shock on one side of the face.”

Travis Barker revealed that he had an episode of trigeminal neuralgia in a new post on X.

In an earlier post on X, Barker, who is preparing to rejoin his bandmates for the remainder of the Europe leg of their tour, had opened up once more about his fear of flying. “I still hate flying. I love touring and playing music but I unfortunately associate traveling and flying with death,” he wrote on the social media platform. “I am strong and nothing can keep me from living life though 💪.”

In 2008, Barker suffered third-degree burns on 65 percent of his body and underwent several skin grafts and surgeries after a plane crash. Following a show in South Carolina, the drummer and his longtime collaborator DJ AM (Adam Michael Goldstein) boarded a plane that crashed shortly after takeoff.

The crash killed Barker's assistant Chris Baker, pilot Sarah Lemmon and co-pilot James Bland as well as his security guard Charles "Che" Still. Sadly, Goldstein died a year later from a prescription drug overdose.

In July, the drummer marked his 30th flight since the crash.

Blink-182's next performance is scheduled to take place on Oct. 2 at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal, per the band’s website. The “All the Small Things” rockers’ upcoming album is set to be released on Oct. 20, and they released a new single, “One More Time,” earlier this month.

Even outside of touring and dealing with his health issues, Barker has had a busy month.

The drummer recently celebrated the impending arrival of his baby boy with wife Kourtney Kardashian with an elaborate baby shower thrown for her by mom Kris, as well as sisters Kim, Khloé, Kylie and Kendall.

At the vintage Disneyland-themed celebration, which was hosted at Kris’ home, guests were treated to Mickey Mouse balloons, as well as Mickey-shaped pretzels and churros — Kourney’s only requests for the bash.

"Baby shower of my dreams ✨,” Kourtney, 44, wrote alongside a carousel documenting the festivities on Instagram. “Thank you mommy @krisjenner for turning your home into the happiest place on earth, instilling my love of all things Disney, and for throwing this baby shower to celebrate me and your thirteenth grandchild.”

The couple’s baby shower comes less than a month after the Kardashians star revealed that she underwent an “urgent fetal surgery.”

After Blink-182 revealed they had postponed some of their European tour dates because Barker needed to return to the States for an “urgent family matter,” the couple later confirmed that Kourtney had experienced a pregnancy complication.

Alongside a photo of their hands intertwined on Instagram, the expectant mom wrote, "I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life."

"I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock,” she continued the Sept. 6 post. “And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this.”

She continued, “As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.”

“Praise be to God,” she finished. “Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing."
