Maxine is being investigated for all kinds of terrible illnesses as doctors are struggling to find the true cause of her symptoms, with it now seeming increasingly like she may be suffering from a terrible brain disease.

In reality she is faking her illnesses in order to keep Damon Kinsella’s attention; she had an incident at new year after drinking dodgy vodka and the way Damon came running triggered something in her.
