Multiple Sclerosis and Mood Swings

Mood swings are a common symptom of multiple sclerosis, which sometimes goes unrecognized. MS lesions in the frontal lobe of the brain can affect: mood, memory, emotions, judgement, motor function, impulse control, and problem solving abilities. But there are other factors that can contribute to mood swings that are not caused by multiple sclerosis such as chronic stress, blood sugar imbalances, depression and hormone imbalances.

In this video I talk about a few of the ways I have learned to manage mood changes since being diagnosed with MS in 2001.
