Eamonn Holmes reveals he does physio twice a day and takes cold showers to help him cope with chronic pain

THIS Morning host Eamonn Holmes has revealed the rehab plan helping him recover from his "waking nightmare" of chronic back pain.

Last week, the ITV broadcaster stunned fans with his mystery ailment which left him unable to sleep, before forcing him to seek hospital treatment.

Eamonn, 61, took to his Twitter page to write: "Physio just left after 2nd session of the day.

"He said my body was hot … result being that I Needed to cool off with my 2nd Cold Shower of the day."

He then added: "Let's hope it helps me sleep soundly Zzzzź."

Loose Women anchor Ruth Langsford's husband previously told how physio fit into his hectic This Morning cover schedule, as he wrote: "Hey , busy day so far ….. 1 hour physio at 4.30 am to get match fit for today's #ThisMorning ….

"Followed by the Cold shower routine!

"All this will either kill me or cure me.

So far, so good though and remember I'm going to be sharing your #ChronicPain stories & advice."

Eamonn had an MRI scan last week in an attempt to pinpoint the cause of his agonising pain.

Fans were partly cheered when Eamonn announced "progress is happening" after suffering "pain he’s never felt in his life".

But Eamonn says sleep is his "only escape" from the agony.

He recommended fans who are suffering from chronic pain not to underestimate the power of using prayer.

The TV legend told fans: "First physio session of the day finished. Best one yet.

"Feel like progress happening. Energy really flowing. Let's hope it stays that way."

He has said he won't know what's wrong with him until this week because the doctors who can help him are off for Easter.

In 2016, Eamonn underwent a double hip operation yet told how he feared he would die just two hours before the surgery.

After learning his pal, Sir Terry Wogan, had passed away shortly before his operation the former Sky News host told the Daily Star: "It was very foreboding. I was not very optimistic about the whole thing."
