| Updated:

This Morning’s Jenni Falconer has shared a pic on social media to show the effects of an agonising medical condition.

Taking to Instagram, the TV and radio presenter posted a painful-looking snap of her hand after a run in the cold weather.

The photo, showing her fingers looking white and numb, had the caption: “Bring back the warm sunshine… Yesterday it was perfect; a relatively warm, sunny day with little breeze. Today in comparison is so cold and damp that it literally chills my bones.

“If you suffer from Raynaud’s Phenomenon, then this sight will be something you might totally relate to…”

Jenni has previously been open about her battle with the condition, which is a circulatory problem triggered by cold and changes of temperature.

In a conversation with The Mirror five years ago, she explained: “The condition has worsened. I get it in all my fingers and toes and an attack can last up to 30 minutes.”

Speaking further, she said that when feeling returns to the parts of the body affected, it feels as though she is being “poked with cocktail sicks”.

In her latest post about the effects of Raynaud’s, fans who also suffer from the condition sympathised with her in the comments.

One wrote: “Ouch I feel your pain. I have Raynaud’s. Unfortunately I also have the Scleroderma with it too.”

Someone else commented: “Oh so feel for you… the after sting is killing, isn’t [it]!”

A third said: “I’ve been the same today. Had a struggle getting little boy out of his buggy.”

Another told her: “Ouch… It’s so painful! I even get it in the summertime if it’s been a warm day then cooler in the house.”

One of Jenni’s followers said they suffered an attack just recently and asked for advice, to which Jenni replied: “Run in gloves and don’t take your gloves off! Which is what I did and then that was it.”

The presenter, who has a seven-year-old daughter with actor husband James Midgley, currently hosts early morning weekday radio shows on Heart Radio.

She’s also known for working as a travel reporter for This Morning and replacing Holly Willoughby as a stand-in during her maternity leave.
