Is Christina Applegate Suffering With Multiple Sclerosis?

The ‘Dead to Me’ actress Christina Applegate shared on Twitter that she has (MS)Multiple Sclerosis. The Emmy Award-winning actress is well-known for her roles in “Married… with Children”, “Bad Moms,” and “Dead to Me,” announced that she was diagnosed a few months ago and it is a “tough road.”

She tweeted about the difficult journey of her life. “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.”

In this condition, the communication between the brain and other parts of the body disrupts and affects the central nervous system. According to the US National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, multiple sclerosis is “an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system” that can “range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating, as communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted.”

It says,”The vast majority of patients are mildly affected, but in the worst cases, MS can render a person unable to write, speak, or walk.” “MS is a disease with a natural tendency to remit spontaneously, for which there is no universally effective treatment.”

The 49-year-old actress played a widower in the Netflix series Dead to Me. She told the Hollywood Reporter during that time that she asked to use her mastectomy to be included in the show. In 2008, the actress was diagnosed with the early stage of breast cancer. She got to know that she had the BRCA1 gene, which is more likely to develop breast cancer. Hence, she decided to undergo a double mastectomy.

She shared to THR, “Her having a mastectomy was something I brought to [showrunner] Liz [Feldman] in the middle of filming. I was trying to figure out this core pain that she has, and I thought we never really see women in television or in the film really being [shown] having had this surgery.”
