Multiple Sclerosis, Psychological Symptoms

Beside physical symptoms, MS has many emotional consequences. Lack of knowledge about this disease makes doctors unable to remove these symptoms and to help a patient. Although all patients suffering from MS have psychological symptoms, these additional problems are mostly present in the patients who just discovered that they have MS.

Depression is the most common psychological problem with people who suffer from MS. It can last from a few hours to a several months. One study shows that people suffering from the MS have more chance to develop clinical depression (the severest type of depression).

Because people with MS often lose their jobs, some of them even families, they can develop grief. Although some believe that this is in the same category as depression, grief has its own symptoms and it has different medical treatment.

Patients with a MS often change their emotions very quickly and usually they are mixed, so this is maybe the biggest psychological problem which comes with this disease. It can be especially problematic for the patient’s family. The people with MS are often angry and stressed, so their behavior cannot be predicted. Other problems which can affect to the whole family is inappropriate behavior. Because the patient has damage of normal inhibitory brain functions, they often cannot make a difference what is wrong and forbidden and what is normal. There are some studies that patients with MS have increased sexual desire. Some scientists believe that this is way that patients want to reduce stress and depression.
