“I can barely lift my head off the pillow and my arms are like lead. I have aching bones, all my back is aching, it’s like I’ve literally got the full blown flu.

‘When I try to walk it’s like I’m an 80-year-old man, I’m not joking, it’s horrendous.”

Finally adding: “Obviously not everyone is going to get it like this, but just to let you know there’s a possibility.”
