His fans were quick to send well wishes, with one writing: "Oh no! Get well soon." A second said: "Wishing you all the best Eamonn," and a third added: "Sending you so much love and strength."

One fan also touched about their own experience, to which Eamonn encouragingly replied: "Now that we've all started talking about this maybe more of us should talk to each other sharing experiences, tips & advice regarding chronic pain?

"Because Tweeters there are a lot of us living with this as if we just have to suck it up & get on with things the way we always have."

Hours later, Eamonn sent a positive update by telling his followers: "So here we go… a new day; a new week. Deep breath. Believe you are closer to that light at the end of the tunnel.

"Closer to new beginnings & in some way better versions of ourselves. Not that there's probably anything wrong with your existing version but it's nice to have goals."

However, just days later, Eamonn revealed he was "hurting like hell" during a routine visit to the physio.

"My start to the day... on the physio table looking down on the camera and hurting like hell," he wrote in the caption.

Over on Twitter, he added: "Starting the day by tackling the pain from the night before... On the Physio table. Chronic pain. Just can't get it to go away.

"Sadly so many of you know the feeling. Thanks for sharing your stories. I'm determined to beat this... however much it hurts."
