The professional dancer is currently suffering from chronic pain as a result of her autoimmune conditions and is finding ways to try and reduce this.

One of the many things Carrie has been trying is out hyperbaric oxygen chambers – which involves breathing oxygen into a pressurized chamber, where the atmospheric pressure is raised up to three times higher than normal.

Carrie continued: "But today, I was thinking about everyone who works on The Talk and how much I love and appreciate all the folks I don’t get to interact with while I’m gone, especially the people behind the scenes.

Carrie has a legion of fans on social media

"(Since I come from a 'crew' background, as a choreographer I have always felt more 'behind the scenes' than 'on camera talent'. I just happened to be a BTS person who got on camera.)

"Anyway, I am just missing my POD. My dear friends, my glam fam, my squad, my ride or dies.... @marylinmakeup @rhondaspiesstylist and @stevegberg. I wanted to give them a shout out for being so incredible.
