A popular TikToker has died at the very young age of 30 following months of crippling migraines.

Jehane Thomas, from Doncaster, had over 70,000 followers on the video-sharing platform, where she uploaded daily snippets of her life.

This would range from prepping her children's lunch boxes to sharing some of her favourite high street buys and bargains.

However, her TikTok channel has most recently been taken up by updates on her health, as she battled some terrible migraines.

In one of her videos she explained how she had recently been diagnosed with optic neuritis - a condition caused by inflammation of the optic nerve, which carries messages from the eye to the brain.

For many months, Jehane had been in and out of hospital, and spoke of the devastating impact this had on her children.

Her most recent TikTok came as recent as five days ago, where she was in hospital waiting to go into surgery for her condition.

In the video's caption, the mum wrote: "I'm still waiting to go down to surgery. I can't lift my head up without wanting to be sick and I'm unable to walk, I need to be wheeled everywhere. That's how bad this pain is."

That came shortly after Jehane was discharged from a week-long stay in hospital, but she was forced to return as the migraines came back.

But shortly after, the devastating news was confirmed that Jehane passed away on Friday (17 March), something that was 'totally unexpected', according to her family.

Jehane's best-friend Alyx Reast led tributes online, writing: "Jehane Thomas was a 30-year-old mum of two boys when she suddenly passed away on 17/03/2023.

"Despite suffering from migraines and bouts of illness for several months, her passing was totally unexpected and we are all absolutely heartbroken.

"You are everything good in the world, I'm gonna miss you every single day."

In recent days, Alyx has also set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for Jehane's funeral costs, with close to £11,000 raised so far.

Alyx is not the only one to pay tribute to the TikTok star, with many others in the online space offering their condolences.

One person wrote: "Life is so incredibly cruel. Got the biggest shock reading this absolutely heartbreaking. Hold your loved ones close, sleep tight beautiful."

"How lucky am I to have known such a beautiful, sweet, caring, funny girl. I will miss you so much, never goodbye just see you later gorgeous girlie," another added.
