Big Brother star Chanelle Hayes has opened up about how she is suffering from a mystery illness which has left her with 'horrific pain' all over her body.
The 33 year old posted an Instagram where she asked followers to help her diagnose the problem.
The photos were of Chanelle laid in bed when she wrote: "So lately I've been undergoing lots of medical stuff, ruling out certain conditions etc.
"At the minute, what I'm presenting to docs (after ruling out all other things via bloods, scans etc) is pointing towards fibromyalgia.
"Symptoms I'm having are: Total exhaustion, horrific pain all over, bone aches, muscle aches, headaches.
"Feeling 'out of it' and unable to properly process information."
She also asked fans: "Does anybody suffer from this and have any tips on how to manage it? Any tips would be greatly appreciated…"
Chanelle recently lost an impressive 9.5 stone due to having gastric sleeve surgery after hitting 17 stone.
She posted a photo showing off her incredible weight loss as she stood inside one of the sides of a pair of her old grey joggers that she wore on the day of her surgery.
The star captioned the Instagram post: "These are the joggers I wore the day I went in for my gastric sleeve surgery.
"I kept them to compare a year on and it is completely mind blowing for me to actually see the difference."
Chanelle also told her followers what she now typically eats in a day following her surgery.
She said that on a typical day she tends to eat two scrambled eggs with chorizo, two chocolate cookies, a slice of roast pork with one roast potato, half a Yorkshire pudding with vegetables and finishes the day with a piece of Wendsleydale cheese.
She went on to say that she used to eat more than that and 'so much more'.
Chanelle added: "But I feel satiated and full after such small amounts now I never feel like I’m missing out because that gnawing hunger of being on a diet isn’t there.
"I have noticed that a year on I can definitely eat more than a year ago but my level of restriction differs on a day to day basis."
