Eamonn Holmes, 61, was left in crippling pain not so long ago when he was diagnosed with chronic pain stemming from a hip injury, and nothing seemed to be helping remedy it. Recently, he found that steroid injections appear to be working and the pain he once felt has now completely gone, leaving him reflecting on how he used to take his good health for granted.
Chronic pain now gone because of steroid injections – thank God
He has been regularly updating fans on Twitter about his health and they were over the moon for him that he was no longer uncomfortable and on the mend.
Eamonn, who won’t be hosting the ITV daytime show over half-term with wife Ruth Langsford, penned in his latest social media diary: “Another session of Physio rehab – feels like I’m making progress – slowly but surely.
“Chronic Pain now gone because of Steroid injections – Thank God.”
He added: “Got to strengthen my back now. Small steps, literally. Thanks for sharing your stories.”
Rushing to the comments section, the This Morning presenter was inundated with replies from viewers who wished him well on the last leg of his journey to full recovery, and he tried to respond to every single one.
One wrote: “Really glad to hear you’re on the mend, Eamonn. Fantastic stuff!” to which Eamonn replied: “I’m determined to Rory. We all take our health for granted. Hope u r ok too.”(sic)
“Thinking of you Eamonn. It’s horrible to think of you or anyone in pain. You’ve highlighted the agony so many people suffer on a daily basis. I hear a trip to Belfast can work wonders!” a second penned.
Eamonn answered: “Spot on. Thank God that will be remedied very soon. Impressed by your RNLI role. Always so full of admiration for those who volunteer and the work they do. Hope u r well.”(sic)
A third added: “So glad you’re on the road to recovery! Hopefully you’ll be visiting Northern Ireland soon!”
The Irish presenter beamed as he teased: “Sooner than u may think.”(sic)
“Nothing worse than chronic pain, it’s so depressing especially if it hurts more when lying in bed. Take care my friend,” a fourth wrote.
The host responded: “That’s a big difference. I can now sleep easily. It means so much and I am so thankful.”
Some fans also asked for advice from the presenter to see if any of his treatments could possibly help them too, with one wondering: “Did the cold showers work? Interested in trying this. Glad you’re feeling better.”
Eamonn wrote back: “U have to be in the mood for them… I must admit I’ve dodged them recently… but I do think they are beneficial.”(sic)
He had previously opened up about taking the dreaded freezing dips, having at least two cold showers a day.
While uncomfortable in itself, the ITV star admitted the chilly treatment did help his body and his “brain fog” too.
He had written in his Best magazine column last month: “I wasn’t at all enthusiastic when my physio suggested that to increase my energy levels and circulation I should start my day with a shower – a cold one.”
“Gingerly I built up to it, 10 seconds, 15 then 20.”
He continued: “Brain fog has left me and it genuinely has made me more energetic and positive.”
Eamonn also credited the practice with helping him improve his quality of sleep, after revealing that he often experiences the worst of his pain during the night.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV and on ITV Hub.
