Taking to Twitter this morning, the TV star gave his one million followers an update.

It read: “Will have a clearer picture of what’s causing my pain tomorrow but just to say folks like so many of you I’ve lived with variations of chronic pain for years.”

Eamonn went on to say that he won’t let his chronic pain stop him presenting on ITV breakfast show This Morning upon his return next week.

He continued: “Don’t allow it to stop me working & next week I’d like to be a voice for many of u & discuss the subject on @thismorning.

“In the meantime I am proud that my experience has given you a voice and I’m humbled by your various and different experiences & your kindness to me.”(sic)

The ITV host explained that he plans to use his platform to raise awareness of the condition as well as finding solutions to help those living with it.

“If between us we can get more solutions, more understanding and more resources directed towards CP then that would be a result.”

Fans commented on the TV presenter’s candid tweet with their own stories of living with the condition.

One wrote: “I have widespread psoriatic arthritis-living with pain daily is often overwhelming.

“But life is hard-pain & sleep deprivation go hand in hand. But we carry on. Tomorrows another day. Wish u well.”(sic)

The TV star responded to the comment: “And I you x.”

Replying to another comment, Eamonn revealed that medical professionals have yet to determine the exact cause of his chronic pain.

Another social media user penned: “So hope you get a definite cause, I’m told a different cause at nearly every appointment.”

The ITV star wrote back: “Same here…”, alongside an emoji of a face in pain.

Ahead of his hospital visit, Eamonn told fans his mystery pain had been keeping him up at night.

Earlier this month, the broadcaster said he had been gifted with a Revitive Medic Coach to help with pains.

Eamonn underwent surgery for a double hip replacement back in 2016, however it’s not known if his current pain is related to this.

The presenter took a 10-week break from This Morning and Sky News at the time which included his recovery period.

He previously told The Mirror: “The pain was too much, the inability to stand – whether at a party, or to report on a news story, host a quiz show, to go ­shopping, play a round of golf, fool around with my kids or even walk the dog – one by one became too much.

“So I didn’t make the decision, the ­decision was made for me. But I did decide to have both my hips done at once.”
