Jack Osbourne was in the middle of filming an episode for his show when he started getting symptoms of the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis (MS) he has revealed in Hello! Magazine.
Filming for the paranormal TV program involved him scuba diving in a cold lake at night in Utah.
As Jack explains,
‘When I came out, I had a headache and went back to the hotel to sleep. The next day, the vision in my right eye started going in and out of focus. Later that evening, a black dot appeared in the same eye. When I woke up the next day the dot had turned into a cigar shape, and eventually it turned into a big blind spot in the middle of my eye.’
Jack (26) who is engaged to Lisa Stelly, later found out that he had lost 60% vision in his right eye. Further consultations confirmed the MS diagnosis, just three weeks after his daughter, Pearl Clementine, was born.
Multiple scheloris affects the brain and the nervous system.
Jack says he now has to take things easy and give up his much loved marathon running and curb some of his more outrageous TV stunts. He is having a little trouble adjusting to the limitations.
Meanwhile, his mom, Sharon Osbourne has been dealing with feelings of guilt, wondering if she somehow caused Jack to develop this condition.
‘I keep thinking, “what did I do wrong? What did I eat or drink when I was pregnant?” I feel like it’s somehow my fault.’
