“Intense pain in my legs, not being able to walk to the bathroom without feeling like I’m going to fall, insane tingling, spurts of tingles,” she said of the pain she’s currently experiencing.

”I haven’t slept for 24 hours because my eye is doing something weird, where every time I close my eye to go to sleep, my right eye starts to shift like this.”

Applegate added that she’s having issues with her legs, saying: “My legs have never been this bad… so I don’t know what’s going on, like, no energy.”

It comes after The Sweetest Thing star revealed she has 30 lesions on her brain from her Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

“I have 30 lesions on my brain,” she said on a recent episode of Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert.

“My biggest one is behind my right eye, so my right eye hurts a lot.”

So far her vision hasn’t been affected but this could worsen as the disease progresses.

Applegate, who was officially diagnosed with MS in 2021, explained on the podcast about other impacts of her condition, including mobility issues.

“My hand starts to go weird and then I’ll get a seizure-y feeling sometimes in my brain,” she said.

MS is the most common acquired chronic neurological disease affecting young adults, according to MS Australia.

In MS, the body’s own immune system mistakenly attacks and damages the fatty material – called myelin – around the nerves. This results in a range of symptoms.
