Jamie-Lynn Sigler Discusses Life with Multiple Sclerosis

At first, she kept it a secret

When Sigler proceeded with a divorce from her ex-husband, she underwent a significant amount of stress, which can intensify MS symptoms. At this point, she began to feel many of the symptoms she had read about but never experienced. Her right side was weak, she would lose her balance often, and even had bladder problems.

When she asked a medical professional for help, she says, "he told me, 'I'm going to pretend you never told me you have MS, and you are never going to tell anyone at work. You will get fired. No one will hire you. People will judge you. Keep it between us."

She followed his advice.
