KERRY Katona has told how she had become so fearful for her health that she raced into A&E.
The Atomic Kitten legend, 42, said she was “so worried” when a concerning condition failed to clear up.
Kerry told last month that she felt unable to breathe, telling fans: “I feel like I need popping.”
But things became so serious she has now revealed she’s visited hospital to try and get a diagnosis.
The star told the latest edition of New magazine: “I’m really swollen and it hasn’t got any better. I ended up going to A&E as I was so worried about it.
“They’ve told me that they need to investigate further.
“So for now, my doctor at Pall Mall Cosmetics has given me some water tablets which will hopefully help with the swelling.”
The star explained that she had visited the clinic for a consultation for an eyelid lift she planned to have done.
Kerry explained her ordeal in a previous column, saying: “I was lying down in bed and I felt like I couldn’t breathe.
“My throat and chest felt really tight, it was awful. I felt like I was going to die.”

She added: “My body has been swollen since I had surgery last year. My whole body is sore and puffy – my legs, my stomach, my face, my neck. I feel like I need popping.”
Kerry – whose book Whole Again was recently released – has had many procedures over the years including several boob jobs and reductions, liposuction as well as a tummy tuck.
In a recent episode of the Net Mums podcast she reflected on why she’s gone under the knife so many times.
The singer said: “I started out as a page 3 model, I had a great set of t**s on me. I wasn’t going to be a rocket scientist – that was my get out, I was a pretty girl, I used what god gave me.
“Half my body’s not mine anyway. I’ve been sliced and diced so many bloody times I’m like a flat pack from Ikea.”
