Primetime Emmy-winning US actor Christina Applegate has revealed her multiple sclerosis condition via a Twitter post late on Monday evening (local time).
Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some asshole blocks it, the Dead to Me actor posted.
As one of my friends that has MS said we wake up and take the indicated action. And that’s what I do. So now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing. Thank you xo, Applegate added.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord, causing problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance. It is treatable in most cases, though life expectancy is slightly reduced. It is twice or thrice more common in women than men.
