Geordie Shore’s Sophie Kasaei breaks down in tears as she discusses battle with endometriosis
Sophie Kasaei burst into tears when she divulged her 'excruciating' battle with the condition, endometriosis, on Instagram this Thursday.
The Geordie Shore star, 30, compared her horrendous ordeal to someone 'stabbing you in your ovaries' when she shared her experience with her followers.
Endometriosis is a condition resulting from endometrial tissue outside the uterus which causes pelvic pain and is often related to menstruation.
Endometriosis affects women of all ages with some of the main symptoms being pelvic pain, period pain and pain during or after having sex.
According to Sophie, she had been experiencing a flare up which resulted in extreme bloating and pain to the point that she couldn't perform her daily routine.
She had to use peppermint and ginger tea to heal her bloating, but to no avail, as the star was left distressed by the ongoing ordeal.
Sophie revealed that she had to leave a personal training session and come home because the pain became so unbearable and she let her followers know how she was feeling.
She said: 'I want to say to anyone who suffers from endometriosis, like it is so painful! I literally was just fine and I've started to cry again.
'I've just done a PT session and I had to leave because the pain that I just felt driving home, honestly I can't describe that pain.
'It's the most excruciating pain, it's like someone's got a knife and is just stabbing you in your ovaries.'
Sophie disclosed her struggle as she nestled into the sofa and her mother comforted her with a hot water bottle.
The TV personality vowed to help other girls who are suffering from the condition, after announcing that she suffers from endometriosis earlier this year.
She said: 'It's absolutely horrendous.
'I'm literally still shaking because it's so painful and I just want to talk about endometriosis because it is so painful when you are on your period.
'I'm usually alright in the month when this time comes, but I wouldn't wish this upon anyone.
'I can't wait to just get this sorted.
'I just need the COVID thing over so I can get this sorted because I can't live with this pain.'
