Christina Applegate Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis

American actress Christina Applegate took to her Twitter account on Monday night, revealing that she has been diagnosed with a condition known as multiple sclerosis.

The 49-year-old actress tweeted, “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 as***le blocks it.”

She also added to her statement,

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 started her career as a child actress and starred in Married… with children as Kelly Bundy. She is also a primetime Emmy award winner for her role as Amy Green in the superhit comedy season F.R.I.E.N.D.S in 2003. She was also nominated for the same show in 2004. She has also been nominated for the Golden Globe award for best performance in her TV series, Dead To Me. Dead To Me season 3 is due to be released later this year.

Christina had previously been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and had to undergo a bilateral mastectomy procedure. She set up a charity foundation later named Right Action For Women.

Multiple sclerosis is a nervous system disorder that affects an individual’s brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It causes visual and motor disturbances in the body, making everyday tasks difficult to perform. The incidence of MS is 2-3 times greater in women as compared to men.
