The actor Christina Applegate said she has multiple sclerosis.
She tweeted early Tuesday: “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 US National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke describes multiple sclerosis as “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.”
“The vast majority of patients are mildly affected, but in the worst cases, MS can render a person unable to write, speak, or walk,” it said. “MS is a disease with a natural tendency to remit spontaneously, for which there is no universally effective treatment.”
