Pop star Miley Cyrus has been diagnosed with laryngitis.

The Climb hitmaker, who is currently promoting her new single We Can't Stop, visited a Beverly Hills medical centre in California on Wednesday (19Jun13) after falling ill, and she has been told to rest her voice after developing the painful throat condition, reports Tmz.com.

Cyrus was photographed leaving the office building covering her mouth with her sweatshirt and holding onto a health report from her doctor, which contained digital images of her inflamed throat.

And it appears the 20 year old is in need of some tender loving care from her mum Tish - in a post on her Twitter.com page on Thursday (20Jun13), she writes, "Sick... iwantmymommy".
