Newlywed Jamie-Lynn Sigler revealed she has multiple sclerosis (MS).
The Sopranos alum, who just tied the knot with former Washington Nationals infielder Cutter Dykstra, told People that she was diagnosed about 15 years ago. "I wasn't ready until now," Sigler said of coming clean about her illness. "You'd think that after all these years, somebody would be settled with something like this, but it's still hard to accept."
She also opened up about it on Instagram.
Sigler, 34, said she initially lived a symptom-free life "for quite some time" but eventually it "reared its ugly head." The actress described her symptoms, which are under control for now, to the publication, but fortunately she keeps a positive attitude and a sense of humor about her illness.
"I can't walk for a long period of time without resting. I cannot run. No superhero roles for me," she joked. "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."
