Selma Blair Reveals She Is ‘In Remission’ from Multiple Sclerosis: ‘My Prognosis Is Great’

Selma Blair shared some good news with fans on Monday. While appearing virtually at the discovery+ TCA panel Monday, the actress revealed her MS is in remission!

Blair was diagnosed with the chronic immune disease in Aug. 2018. After a year of dealing with intense pain and physical struggles from MS, Blair chose to undergo a stem cell transplant and an “aggressive” course of chemotherapy to restart her immune system.

“My prognosis is great. I’m in remission. Stem cell put me in remission,” Blair said. “It took about a year after stem cell for the inflammation and lesions to really go down.”

“I was reluctant to talk about it because I felt this need to be more healed and more fixed,” she said. “I’ve accrued a lifetime of some baggage in the brain that still needs a little sorting out or accepting. That took me a minute to get to that acceptance. It doesn’t look like this for everyone.”

“I have really felt unwell and misunderstood for so long that it’s just, me,” she added.
