Jamie-Lynn Sigler Opens Up About Multiple Sclerosis

Jamie-Lynn Sigler shares her experience with multiple sclerosis.

Months after Jamie-Lynn Sigler revealed that she’s had multiple sclerosis for 15 years, the former Sopranos star spoke candidly with Glamour about what it’s like to live with the disease on a daily basis.

In January, Sigler revealed for the first time that she’s been battling the autoimmune disorder since she was 20. Multiple sclerosis is an illness that impacts the nervous system’s ability to function properly, often resulting in physical pain or stiffness, fatigue, bowel problems and cognition challenges, among other symptoms.
