Throughout a person’s life, they might well encounter some unusual issues with their body. Yet whether it be an ache or a rash, these ailments can often resolve themselves after a short while.

And that’s because Phillpotts struggled to shake off what initially seemed to be a fairly innocuous issue – but was actually a life-threatening concern.
