Check it out: In response to his post, Samantha tweeted, “Thank you sir for your kind and encouraging words @KChiruTweets.”

On Saturday, Samantha took her Instagram handle and shared a picture of herself sitting on a couch with an IV on her wrist. She captioned the picture: “Their reaction to the ‘Yashodha’ trailer was overwhelming. It is this love and connection that I share with all of you that gives me the strength to deal with the seemingly endless challenges life throws at me. A A few months ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called myositis. I was hoping to share this after it went into remission. But it’s taking a little longer than I had hoped. I’m starting to realize that we don’t always have to build a strong front.”

She continued, “Accepting this vulnerability is something I’m still struggling with. Doctors are confident that I will make a full recovery very soon. I’ve had good days and bad days…physically and emotionally…and even when it feels like I can’t take that day anymore, that moment kind of passes. I guess it can only mean I’m another day closer to recovery. I love you. THIS WILL PASS TOO. Explaining the autoimmune disease, S. Chatterjee, Chief Internal Medicine Physician at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, explained, “Myositis is an inflammation of the muscles. It can be caused by an infection, most commonly a viral infection, or a bacterial infection, autoimmune, when your own body attacks your own muscles, medication, or an injury.”

“It manifests weakness in the muscles like difficulty moving, swelling and pain in the muscles. The test that needs to be performed is CPK. Another confirmatory test is a biopsy. Treatment of the disease consists of anti-inflammatory drugs and intravenous immunoglobulins. It may or may not always get better and it could just be a controllable disease that may not have a complete cure,” he added. (ANI)
