BBC presenter Naga Munchetty resorted to calling an ambulance after a debilitating condition left her in agony at the weekend.
The star of BBC Breakfast opened up on the agonising pain during her BBC Radio 5 Live show this morning.
She has gone public with her condition after her husband was forced to call an ambulance over the weekend as a result of a severe flare-up.
Naga said this morning of her heartbreaking ordeal: "The pain was so terrible I couldn't move, turn over, sit up. I screamed non-stop for 45 minutes."
The womb condition is known as adenomyosis and is thought to affect around one in every 10 women but is often undiagnosed.
Speaking about her level of discomfort, Naga told listeners: "Right now as I sit here talking to you, I am in pain. Constant, nagging pain.

"In my uterus. Around my pelvis. Sometimes it runs down my thighs.
"And I'll have some level of pain for the entire show and for the rest of the day until I go to sleep."
Naga bravely spoke about her condition after chatting to other women who had been suffering from the illness.
What is Adenomyosis?
Adenomyosis is a condition of the uterus (womb), where the tissue that grows on the lining of the uterus (also known as the endometrium) is also present on the inside muscular wall of the uterus.
Adenomyosis can cause symptoms such as heavy bleeding during your period, bleeding when you are not due for your period, period pain (dysmenorrhea), pain during or after sex (dyspareunia) and infertility.
Although the condition is not life-threatening, it can have serious symptoms.
Some women undergo a hysterectomy to lessen the symptoms.
Adenomyosis can have a number of causes though none have been definitively identified.
There is an association between the presence of adenomyosis and the number of times a women has given birth: the more pregnancies, the more likely you are to have adenomyosis.
During her radio show she shared stories from those in similar positions where they discussed the difficulty in gaining a diagnosis and treatment.
