An ex-beauty queen has been left bedbound with Lyme disease due to fatigue and daily pain.
Kirstie Haysman, 34, competed in Miss Great Britain and Miss London City pageants, and was crowned Miss Hertfordshire in 2015.
But eight years later she can hardly leave her house, after being struck down by a debilitating illness.
Kirstie, a mum to daughter Harriet, 11, started having symptoms in 2015. She claims doctors told her she likely had an infection or auto-immune condition.
