Sopranos Star Jamie-Lynn Sigler Shares Her Story of Living with Multiple Sclerosis

A time of stress changed the course of her illness

Around the age of 24, she went through a divorce. The emotional stress caused her multiple sclerosis to flare. She was displaying more and more symptoms and her condition began to manifest. That's when she began to notice some limitations from her condition. It started with some weakness on the right side of her body that worsened to the point where she can't enjoy an evening jog. For the past 10 years, she hasn't been able to go for a run to exercise. High-heels are also difficult to wear, which is hard for many women, especially an actress.
