Louise Thompson has said she 'died and came back to life' during an update about her health on Instagram.

The former Made in Chelsea star, 31, opened up about the physical and mental struggle she has faced since welcoming her little boy, Leo-Hunter Libbey, last year.

Louise was kept in hospital for a month after doctors 'saved her life' following serious complications during Leo's birth.

Recently, she has been sharing her recovery journey with followers. On her Instagram Stories on Thursday, she spoke about the health anxiety she had been experiencing.

Explaining she had been to a dentist appointment, Louise wrote: "I haven't felt mentally well enough to book long overdue check ups until now, but a large part of my anxiety is spurred on by physical health issues which need resolving.

"I've been stuck between a rock and a hard place. I have a lot of black staining between my teeth and my gums on my premolars and it's been stressing me out every time I look in the mirror.

"I was immobile in hospital for weeks so rarely brushed and I was also on antibiotics for over two months which can also have an affect on your teeth too... but obviously I jumped to the conclusion that I have leukaemia because it can affect your mouth and your gums.

"These are some of the more minor inconveniences you have to live with when you die and miraculously come back to life."

Earlier this month, Louise opened up to her followers about her journey to recovery, telling fans she has been fighting depression, anxiety and PTSD.

Louise told followers she's "not even close to feeling like a normal person yet" but felt she was able to talk a little more about how she's been doing.
