Christina Applegate Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis "It's Been a Strange Journey"

Christina Applegate revealed she has multiple sclerosis.

The “Dead to Me” actress tweeted the news Tuesday that she found out “a few months ago.”

“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,” Applegate, 49, wrote.

“It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a–hole blocks it.”

It is not the first health battle for Applegate, who, in 2008, “underwent a double mastectomy and in 2017, “had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed to avoid ovarian cancer.

Applegate-the mother of a daughter Sadie with husband Martyn LeNoble — “asked for privacy as she focuses on her health.”

“As one of my friends that has MS said ‘we wake up and take the indicated action’. And that’s what I do,” she wrote. “So now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing. Thank you xo.”
