Jonathan Ross’ eldest daughter, Betty Kitten Ross, 30, has opened up about her medical condition, known medically as fibromyalgia. The 30-year old has talked about her condition to her Instagram followers.
I have a lot of people who think that because I said I don’t want medical advice that I don’t take medicine.

In view of her 4,727 followers, Betty has posted a series of Instagram stories highlighting her illness.
The Instagram influencer answered questions that she allowed them to pose her.
One follower asked her: “Can I ask you what medication you take please? I have fibromyalgia and a host of other issues.”
She responded: “I’m so glad you asked this. I have a lot of people who think that because I said I don’t want medical advice that I don’t take medicine.
“I actually do go that route, I just only want advice from like, doctors.
“I’d rather that than like people who don’t know me or haven’t met me or know about my condition.”
She goes on to list a selection of medicines which include stomach lining medicines and painkillers.
Betty also explained more about the origins of her illness and says that she got her diagnosis from a COVID specialist.
This happened when she was also diagnosed with COVID several months ago.
She went on to say that she had been offered a lot of treatment to help with her condition.
“The long COVID clinic recommended me on to a pain clinician as well as a chronic fatigue and M.E clinic.
“I also saw a neorologist and had an FMRI,” she added.
She said that the hardest part of having fibromyalgia was the cognitive after effects and fatigue from the illness.
She added that her faith in Judaism has helped her cope with the disease.
She offered a warning to those who are recently diagnosed with the disease that early side-effects include extreme sensitivity, stiffness, fatigue, poor sleep quality and cognitive problems as well as irritable bowel syndrome.
This news first came when Jonathan went on Good Morning Britain a few weeks ago.
Jonathan said he cancelled his famous Halloween party over fears that he would be hosting a ‘superspreader’ event while Betty was ill upstairs.
He said: “One of our children isn’t well… it’s fibromyalgia which is quite debilitating.”
“She’s back home with us and we’re looking after her.
“She’s upstairs and I thought, ‘I can’t in good conscience have a big loud fun party downstairs and one of my kids is locked in a room upstairs’. It would be like something out of a horror novel.”
The star said: ‘My daughter, we thought she had Long Covid but discovered that she had fibromyalgia, so we want to be conscious of that and not have so much noise when she’s upstairs.”
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition defined by widespread pain and fatigue, which effects up to 2.7 per cent of people worldwide, with three women suffering for every one man, studies suggest.
It is often triggered by a trauma, such as a car accident or childbirth, as well as infections, but why this occurs is unclear.
