emotional changes

Understandably, many people find their adjustment to a diagnosis difficult. Learning to manage the variable symptoms that MS may bring can be mentally and emotionally challenging.

Everyone reacts to MS differently and the condition can present very differently from person to person. Occasionally, MS symptoms can affect and link to longer-term issues like depression and anxiety.

 Everyone reacts to MS differently and emotional symptoms can be incredibly personal, therefore there is no one treatment that will work for everyone. 

In our experience it can often bring out a person's inner strength in dealing with the challenges presented. This is where good up to date information is particularly valuable.

People living with MS can seek help from various sources, such as MS clinical teams, clinical psychologists, peer support groups and talking therapies. Gaining a referral from your neurologist or general practitioner can help you to explore these options.
