Christina Applegate diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

Christina Applegate has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

The Dead To Me and Friends actress, 49, confirmed her condition – a lifelong condition that affects the brain and nerves – on social media, explaining that it has been a ‘strange journey’ so far.

Taking to Twitter, she told fans: ‘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 a*****e blocks it.

‘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.’

‘I have #multiplesclerosis . I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix, I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things,’ she said on Instagram at the time.

‘My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken GPS. But we are doing it. And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best.

‘I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share [sic].’
