Caulfield Ford stated: 'Back in 2010, I was working on Marti Noxon's Gigantic and prior to starting that job, I woke up one morning and the left side of my face felt like there were a million ants crawling on it.'

She added: I went to my acupuncturist, and he was like, "I don't know, man. Maybe you have Bell's palsy?"...Even when I was with the neurologist, he was like, "Yeah, it sounds like Bell's palsy, honestly. You've been under a lot of stress."'

The performer pointed out that the effects of the disease began appearing during a particularly turbulent period of her life.

She stated: 'That was literally the year of hell for me. There was so much going on. Really bad personal life stuff. So I said, "yeah, that's probably it."'

The actress added that 'there were a lot of things happening. A succession of just, "You've got to be kidding me." I was under a tremendous amount of stress. So could it have been the thing that triggered it?...There's no way of knowing any of that.'

Caulfield Ford then remarked that she was informed that she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in an abrupt manner. 

She recalled: 'I had a missed call from the doctor's office, so I called back. I'm just like, "What's up?" I had five minutes down or whatever. And he was like: "You have MS." Just like that. It was like an out-of-body experience.'

The performer stated: 'I'm like, "No, that's not possible." I'm like, "What are you talking about?" He was very matter of fact about it. "Well, you can get a second opinion."' 

Caulfield Ford went on to express that she immediately became concerned for her health after receiving the call.

She stated: 'It was literally a kind of nightmare…It turns out it was something major. Then I was like, "I've got to go to work now.' What do I do?"'
