American actress Christina Applegate claims she has MS. The 49-year-old Emmy winner wrote to her 1.4 million followers on Twitter yesterday evening: “Hey guys. I was diagnosed with MS a few months ago. It’s been a ‘hard road,’ but she has received support from people Others have the disease.
Applegate ended a second tweet with the words: “That’s why I’m now asking for privacy. While I’m going through this thing. Thank you.”
Cancer Diagnosis 2008
It’s not Applegate’s first health setback. In 2008, the actress had her breasts removed after being diagnosed with cancer. In 2017, her ovaries and fallopian tubes were removed to prevent cancer recurrence.
The Hollywood star suffers from a mutation in the BRCA1 gene, which greatly increases the risk of cancer in women. Applegate has been a mother since 2011. In the 1990s she was known in Austria as Kelly Bundy, nicknamed “Domby Chi”, in the TV series A Terrible Cute Family.
Applegate’s classmate, Selma Blair from “Super sweet and super sexy” (2002), also announced her MS diagnosis in 2018.
MS is a nervous system disorder that causes inflammation of the spinal cord and brain. The cycle is very different and unpredictable. Inflammation can heal, but the patient’s condition can worsen over the years.
