Sopranos star reveals MS Battle
Jamie Lynn Sigler reveals to People Magazine that she was diagonosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 20 years old. In the interview she revealed that she took steps to cover up her illness while working.
"Sometimes all I needed was like five or 10 minutes to sit and recharge but I wouldn't ask, because I didn't want them to be suspicious."
She also stated that she went symptom free for a while before she started feeling them in the last decade.
"I can't walk for a long period of time without resting. I cannot run. No superhero roles for me, Stairs? I can do them but they're not the easiest. When I walk, I have to think about every single step, which is annoying and frustrating."
She has been taking a number of MS drugs to keep her symptoms stable for the last 6 years.
On a personal note I have a friend from High School who was also diagnosed in her early 20's with MS, it's tough so see someone who was so active end up in a wheel chair because they can't walk with out help anymore.
