Jack Osbourne


Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, People reports.


Osbourne, 26, learned of the shocking news just two weeks after he
and fiancée Lisa Stelly welcomed their first child, daughter Pearl
Clementine. "I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, 'Why
now?' " Jack told the magazine. "I've got a family and that's what's
supposed to be the most important thing."


It's a girl for Jack Osbourne and Lisa Stelly


Multiple Sclerosis affects the central nervous system — specifically
the brain and the spiral cord — and can cause problems with muscle
strength and control, balance, vision, feeling and thinking. However,
the disease varies greatly from person to person — some people only
experience minor issues while others are severely affected by the
illness.


Osbourne is best known for co-starring on The Osbournes with his dad, Ozzy, his mom, Sharon and his sister, Kelly.

    Me. I was diagnosed a year ago in May and I must say it really sucks. When I go to the pharmacy to pick up my Rxs, they give me a brown grocery sack each month that is 2/3 full with all my Rxs. In the dark, I cant find my nose to scratch it if it itches, the pain rarely lets up and I'm now dealing with foot drop which I liken to walking in flippers. Months before I was diagnosed, I was trying to use my car remote on the front door of my house and couldnt figure out why my door would not unlock and tried using the remote control to the tv as a phone and became quite upset that there was no dial tone.

    I was diagnosed in 2002 with MS, then with Fibromyalgia in 2007, then adenomyosis of the Uterus, then diagnosed with the beginning stages of Breast Cancer in 2008 and had to have a Mastectomy because my Maw-Maw died from Breast Cancer when I was 9. Then last year 2012 my Aunt (my Moms sister) was also diagnosed with Breast Cancer and chose to get a double Mastectomy. I wish I would have done that also so that I don't need to worry about it popping up in my other Breast!

    My "little" sister (she's 43). Second worst thing to MS was the 4-5 years it took to diagnose her. I guess having a diagnosis can be a relief when the not knowing is also horrible and frustrating. We are going to Johns Hopkins but would love recommendations for sweet MS specialists. She highly recommends forearm crutches. She calls them her new legs because her weight is better distributed and they help prevent falling (which she does often without them).

    My cousins wife has it. With treatments she moves normally [when I see her]. She tells me there are bad days when as she says things don't move like they should. Occasionally she needs a wheelchair. A proper women I don't pry into her affairs but from my observations it's a living hell.

    Makes you wonder if the massive drug use by Ozzy damaged his DNA and he transferred it to Jack.

    Very sad

    My former sister in law (ex's sister) has MS. She developed it when she was in her 20's and is now wheelchair bound. I have the dubious distinction of living in an area with a higher than average rate of MS in the general population.

    You're very young. I'm so sorry you have MS.

    My oldest sister told me that her sister-in-law's husband's sister has MS (she's in her late 60's). She's already in a wheelchair. And she doesn't like to take the pain medication from her doctor because she says it makes her too drowsy. So she just drinks Vodka. And when she's at family gatherings, she brings her Vodka with her. She doesn't like being left out of family gatherings because of her MS.

    What kinds of medication do you take to help you make it through the day? And does it help you?

    Poor guy!

    The prognosis (the expected future course of the disease) for a person with multiple sclerosis depends on the subtype of the disease; the individual's sex, age, and initial symptoms; and the degree of disability the person experiences. The disease evolves and advances over decades, 30 being the mean years to death since onset.

    Female sex, relapsing-remitting subtype, optic neuritis or sensory symptoms at onset, few attacks in the initial years and especially early age at onset, are associated with a better course.

    The life expectancy of people with MS is 5 to 10 years lower than that of unaffected people. Almost 40% of patients reach the seventh decade of life. Nevertheless, two-thirds of the deaths in people with MS are directly related to the consequences of the disease. Suicide also has a higher prevalence than in the healthy population, while infections and complications are especially hazardous for the more disabled ones.

    Although most patients lose the ability to walk prior to death, 90% are still capable of independent walking at 10 years from onset, and 75% at 15 years
