Melissa Suffield has revealed she is close to discovering the cause of her nausea and dramatic weight loss.

The former EastEnders star, 31, has been suffering from vomiting attacks for the past six months and has spent £1,500 on private consultations to try to find the cause.

Melissa took to her Instagram Story on Monday to explain how she was diagnosed with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).

According to the Mayo Clinic, SIBO “usually occurs when conditions like surgery or illness slow the passage of food and waste through the digestive tract, creating a breeding ground for bacteria.”

“Excess bacteria often causes diarrhea, which can lead to weight loss and malnutrition.”

Melissa, who plays Lucy Beale on the show, added that she also has low blood levels of vitamin B12 and SIPO could actually be a symptom of that.

The actress explained that she had her vitamin B12 levels tested and found them to be well below the normal range.

The star noted that because she was already taking vitamin B12 supplements, her natural levels were probably much lower.

In her post, she wrote, “There’s a good chance I have a problem absorbing Vitamin B12. Why? I’m not sure, but I know it’s a good chance. I may find out why later, but it needs to be addressed now.”

“I truly hope this will be the start of true healing and help me get back to where I belong, back to who I am.”

She said she plans to travel to Cambridge next month to see a vitamin B2 specialist and to be taught how to give herself vitamin B12 injections.

“I would rather spend all my free time playing with my son, seeing friends and family, eating good meals and just not worrying all the time than spending all my free time reading NICE guidelines, researching and reading papers and studies,” she wrote.

“Don’t be surprised if you suddenly see me posting a ton of ads, because this is awesome.”

She continued, “It’s okay to experience these symptoms. Every part of your body changes when you have a baby, and it’s okay if your body is one of those new things.”

“When you finish your fourth trimester and suddenly find yourself regaining your energy, your body and your life, with the expectation that everything has to be perfect, it can feel like there’s pressure and a time limit.

“It’s awful. My kid just turned four and I don’t think I’m ever going to get those things back.”

“So welcome to the fifth trimester. There’s no pressure here. It’s okay to be your true self, Mom.”
