Chanelle Hayes says she cant sleep as bones are hurting after M.E. diagnosis
Chanelle Hayes candidly opened up on her M.E condition, revealing she "can't sleep" because her "bones feel like they're going to explode".
The former Big Brother star, 34, opened up to her 120,000 Instagram followers as she posted up on her Instagram stories.
Writing in a post, Chanelle shared her struggle as she said: "When you can't sleep because your bones are hurting" followed by a series of sad face and crying emojis.
She added a GIF sticker of a woman looking upset while in bed and added another sticker which simply said "pain".
Later, she added another post which read: "Aaaaaaand back awake because my bones feel like they're going to explode" followed by a series of crying emojis.
It comes after Chanelle opened on her M.E diagnosis after her nine stone weight loss.
Her chronic condition leaves her in agony. She compared the pain to childbirth and the exhaustion has even been left her bed-bound for days.
M.E is long-term condition with a wide range of symptoms. The most common symptom is extreme tiredness, according to the NHS.
Chanelle's chronic illness went undiagnosed with sometime and suffered with fatigue and joint and muscular pain for years beforehand.
She revealed: "I always put my symptoms down to being so obese".
Chanelle added to The Sun: "I thought 'I'm overweight, it's my own fault, no wonder I'm tired all of the time and no wonder my joints are killing me.'
"Then as I started to lose weight I felt like the pain was getting worse and worse.
"It's a hidden disability that people scoff at thinking you're just being lazy.
"But there are days I've slept for 14 hours and when I wake up in the morning I still haven't got enough energy to brush my teeth or do my hair.
"It's literally awful and so frustrating. I've found myself crying because I get so mad at how tired I get."

Chanelle, who recently flaunted her weight loss in a pink bikini, added: "I can't understand why my body won't let me do certain things.
"I'm a qualified personal trainer and love going to the gym, but I physically can't go anymore. Once I go I'm out of action for about four days in bed.
"I feel like I am missing out on lots of time with the kids because I'm sleeping so much. I've even lost more weight than I wanted to because of how much I'm asleep."
