Jack Osbourne had to seek medical attention after discovering his pulse rate had increased during filming season two of Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.
The 38-year-old is the son of musician Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon Osbourne, and he is competing alongside Tom Sandoval, JoJo Siwa, and Tyler Cameron.
Tara Reid, Savannah Chrisley, and Kelly Rizzo. Blac Chyna and Brian Austin Green are among those who have previously left the Fox show, which airs on Mondays, but might the father-of-four be the next to leave?
In a first-look clip of tonight’s episode, obtained by Entertainment Weekly, he could be seen being sent for a check-up after sparking concern.
‘My heart rate won’t go down,’ Jack, who lives with multiple sclerosis, told a member of the team, before seeing a medical professional.
‘Having a multiple sclerosis diagnosis at 26 was a huge, “Why me?!”,’ he explained in a voice over. ‘High stress can cause a flare-up.
‘My heart rate won’t go down, and I’m just redlining always,’ the star explained, before the medic instructed him to take deep breaths.
‘Your heart is getting almost twice as fast as what you normally run,’ they shared. ‘I think with your history, you’ve got to take it seriously.’
With his health under scrutiny, it is unclear if Jack will be able to compete all the way to the conclusion.
After first complaining of eye issues and a pinched nerve in his leg, the TV superstar was diagnosed with MS in 2012, at the age of 26.
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects neurons in the body, making it difficult for sufferers to conduct everyday tasks such as walking, talking, and eating.
It can produce a variety of symptoms, including weariness, trouble walking, balance and coordination impairments, and visual abnormalities.
There is presently no cure, although certain therapies can alleviate symptoms.
Jack revealed that he had a’mild version’ of the ailment and hasn’t had ‘any excessively major’ symptoms in years.
What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a lifelong condition that affects the brain and spinal cord. It can sometimes cause serious disability, although it can occasionally be mild.
There is currently no cure for MS, but a number of treatments can help the condition. It is most commonly diagnosed in people in their 20s and 30s, although it can develop at any age.
It causes a wide range of potential symptoms, including fatigue, difficulty walking, problems with balance and co-ordination, and issues with vision.
Depending on the type of MS, symptoms may come and go in phases or get steadily worse over time (progress).
In a candid chat with the Messenger, he insisted that MS didn’t really factor into his time on Special Forces.
‘The MS didn’t really present any issues during Special Forces,’ he said. ‘It was not a problem.
‘Most days I forget — it’s even a positive part of my life, to be honest with you.
‘I know it’s not the case for everyone, but I just count my blessings.’
Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test airs on Fox on Mondays at 9pm ET.
