Lisa Maffia has been rushed to hospital and has been given morphine after being left in excruciating pain.

The So Solid Crew star, 42, took to her Instagram on Tuesday to share an update to her fans, revealing that her suffering is related to her endometriosis and fibroids.

Lisa shared an image of a drip in her arm and captioned the post: ‘@nhsengland this is a madness, I’m on morphine for the pain but all 7 hours later no one has even spoken to me.’

The singer then listed the words: ‘Fibrosis, Endometriosis, High white blood cells.’ 

Lisa then filmed herself from hospital as she gave a further update to her 77k followers.

Speaking wearily into the camera, she said: ‘I thought I would update you I have endo and fibroids that is why I am always tired and s**t.’

The All Over hitmaker added: ‘So if anyone has any info on how to deal with fibroids, let me know man. peace.’

WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?

Endometriosis occurs when cells in the lining of the womb are found elsewhere in the body. 

Each month, these cells react in the same way as those in the womb; building up, breaking down and bleeding. Yet, the blood has no way to escape the body.

Symptoms include pain, heavy periods and fatigue, as well as a higher risk of infertility, and bowel and bladder problems.

Its cause is unknown but may be genetic, related to problems with the immune system or exposure to chemicals.

Treatment focuses on pain relief and improving quality of life, which may include surgery or hormone treatment.

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Lisa for comment. 

Endometriosis occurs when cells in the lining of the womb are found elsewhere in the body. 

Symptoms include pain, heavy periods and fatigue, as well as a higher risk of infertility, and bowel and bladder problems.

Its cause is unknown but may be genetic, related to problems with the immune system or exposure to chemicals.

Meanwhile, Fibroids are benign growths in or around the wombs and affects around one in three women, most often between the ages of 30 and 50. 

They are thought to develop more frequently in women of African- Caribbean origin. 

It’s also thought they occur more often in overweight or obese women because being overweight increases the level of oestrogen in the body. 

Symptoms include Heavy or painful periods, abdominal pain, frequent urination and constipation and pain during sex.

In October last year, Lisa shared a tearful apology and confirmed she did not have cervical cancer after confusing some fans amid learning she had abnormal cells.

Lisa had initially posted to her Instagram stories stating that she has been diagnosed with the disease, but she was forced to amend the post after realising she had made an error, suffering instead from abnormal cells that could develop cancer if left untreated.

Posting prior to a colposcopy appointment at hospital, Lisa wrote: ‘I never miss a smear and I unfortunately have cervical cancer.’

She had meant to write ‘I unfortunately have cervical cancer in my family’ and swiftly removed the first post and replaced it.

The rest of the caption read: ‘So now I’m even more cautious. This is just a reminder to anyone that maybe has forgotten to get tested!’

She added the warning: ‘It’s not a game!’

Lisa then filmed herself leaving the hospital after the appointment, explaining how she had felt ‘petrified’ ahead of the colposcopy – which is a procedure used to look at the cervix, the lower part of the womb at the top of the vagina – but that it was a ‘quick and easy’ process.

Clad in a face mask, she was tearful as she spoke to the camera, explaining that her mother currently has terminal cervical cancer.

This was deleted, however, and replaced with a new video, explaining that she had made a mistake.

Noticeably distressed, she said: ‘Oh my god guys now I feel so sorry for not checking I’ve had so many messages saying their mums are going through it. I just want to apologise, I think where I was emotional with my mum I just wasn’t thinking.

‘I don’t have cervical cancer I had abnormal cells that needed to be burned away that could have turned cancerous.’

Her now-deleted video saw her telling her fans: ‘Just like that I am already out. As you can see I was really upset,’ she said. ‘My mum has cervical cancer, terminal cancer, so going into this every time I’ve had to go into this – this is the third time they’ve had to check my cells – makes me absolutely petrified…’

‘It can happen to anyone,’ she said, before bravely adding: ‘I’m cool.’
