Abbey Clancy ‘couldn’t stop crying’ after terrifying symptom made her think she had MS

Abbey Clancy ‘couldn’t stop crying’ after terrifying symptom made her think she had MS

She found the symptom very scary and after Googling it was even more worried

Abbey Clancy revealed that she 'couldn't stop crying' after she feared she had a symptom of a life-changing condition.

She and husband Peter Crouch recently appeared on the NewlyWeds podcast, hosted by Made In Chelsea couple Sophie Habboo and Jamie Laing.

During the podcast she said she was afraid that she was having a sign of multiple sclerosis (MS), a condition that affects the brain and spine to cause a plethora of symptoms.

MS can affect a person's vision, movement and balance which can cause serious disability and affect their lives hugely.

The condition occurs when a person's immune system mistakenly attacks part of their body, the brain and spinal cord in the case of MS, and this damage disrupts the messages being sent around the body.

Clancy told NewlyWeds she went to see a multiple sclerosis specialist to work out what was going on because of the health scare.

"It's when I had these jeans on, they were so tight they would stop the blood where I was sitting down. But googling it, it was MS," the 37-year-old said after she felt numb from the waist down, which is a symptom which can indicate MS.

"I'd been holding [the worry] in so much that when I got to the doctor, I went hysterical and couldn't stop crying."

Doctors told her she fortunately didn't have MS, but did tell her she likely had an anxiety disorder around her health, hypochondria.

It was then that her husband added: "Health anxiety is a thing, she has got an issue with that, I'd like Abs to worry less.

"It feels like she takes on everyone's problems, It's a nice thing but it takes its toll."

Clancy and Crouch have their own podcast together, The Therapy Crouch, a couples podcast where they discuss their relationship and deal with the things their listeners are going through as well.

The podcast has a 'whine of the week' segment where Clancy is allowed to bring up a complaint she has.

One week she took aim at the way her husband tried to let her know he was down for some private time when the kids were out of the house.

It turns out everyone's favourite former footballer sends his wife 'sexual emojis' including a beaver and an aubergine, and she wondered what he thought he was doing.

Another time she revealed that if she wanted to turn him down she tied the cord of her dressing gown round the back instead of the front.

The couple started dating in 2006 and got married in 2011, they have four children together.
