Christina Applegate Health: How the Disease Affect Her Life?

Since being diagnosed with MS in August 2021, Christina Applegate has been candid about the potential effects the condition could have on her her career. The 50-year-old star of Bad Moms found out she had multiple sclerosis while filming the third season of her Netflix drama Dead to Me.

Famous actress says filming last season was “as hard as you would possibly think it would be.” “It’s about finding what I’m capable of doing,” the actress said of her acting future. “I’m so new in this right now. It takes time to kind of figure out this disease, and figure out what’s bringing on symptoms. I’m just a newbie to all of this.

So I’m trying to figure it out — and I’m also in mourning for the person who I was. I have to find a place that’s as loving as my set was, where they won’t think I’m a diva by saying, “Hey, I can only work five hours.”

What are the Symptoms of MS Disease?

Vision problems, such as blurred vision or even blindness in one eye, are a common early indication. Most patients also have issues maintaining their balance and have muscle weakness in their arms or legs, making it difficult for them to walk or stand.

Symptoms of multiple sclerosis include “isolated eye vision loss,” numbness, tingling in the face, and double vision that lasts for days rather than hours or minutes, according to Dr. Michael G. Ho, an assistant clinical professor of neurology at UCLA in California.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, “Approximately half of all people with MS experience cognitive impairments such as difficulties with concentration, attention, memory and poor judgment, but such symptoms are usually mild and are frequently overlooked,”.

Will Christina Quit Acting Due To Her Health?

Christina Applegate said that she may never again play the lead role in a film or television show because she is looking for “a place that will allow me to do that if I’m not the star,” and that starring in something might be off the table in the future. “There’s no way I could do the work that I just came off again. I mean, it was so hard.”

Their 11-year-old daughter, Sadie Grace LeNoble, whom she shares with husband Martyn LeNoble, is currently her top priority. She continued,  “I love being here for her 100% all the time — to take her to school, to pick her up from school, to be here for her homework, to make her dinner, to be here when she needs me,” she added. “That’s kind of what I missed out on for a while. And she’s very happy to have me here.”

She may be “tired all the time,” but Applegate says she’s “getting stronger” after completing six consecutive days of a Peloton workout before to the new interview. She stated there’s a potential her name would appear on screen in more than one capacity as long as she grows weary with being indoors.

“I’m pretty convinced that this was it, you know? But who knows — I’m probably gonna get real bored of being in my room. I’d like to develop stuff, I’d like to produce stuff,” she said. “I’ve got a lot of ideas in my mind, and I just need to get them executed.”
