She told Elle magazine: "When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn't breathe.

"I would be in a good mood, fine and happy, and they would hit me out of nowhere.

"I've always had anxiety, but it had never been physical before.

"There were a couple of months straight where I felt so upside down."
