A young musician who was recently signed by Sony has been forced to give up his dream career after his body was ravaged with Lyme disease.
Ren Gill was healthy and active, spending six days a week in the gym, until one morning in 2009 he woke up thinking he had the worst hangover he'd ever experienced.
He has spent the last seven years trying to find out what was behind his devastating symptoms which leave him bedbound for up to 23 hours a day.
When the 25-year-old first visited his GP he was diagnosed with depression and bipolar disorder, before being told by doctors in 2011 he had chronic fatigue syndrome.
But last December - after seeking specialist medical advice in Brussels - he was finally diagnosed with the bacterial infection Lyme disease.
