Depression and Multiple Sclerosis

Depression and multiple sclerosisMultiple sclerosis, sometimes called MS, is a disease that causes damage to the nerves of the brain and spinal cord. This is caused by your body’s immune system. Multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease, can cause a loss of balance, vision, muscle control, and a numbing feeling.

Multiple sclerosis affects the central nervous system, the spinal column and the brain. Normal tissues are attacked if you are the victim of an autoimmune disease. A woman is more likely to have multiple sclerosis than a man is and rarely before the teen years.

Symptoms of multiple sclerosis are numerous and variable from person to person. The most notable symptoms of multiple sclerosis are vision disturbances, memory or concentration issues, and muscle weakness.

Everyone has experienced depression at some time in his or her life. It is a feeling of hopelessness and sadness. Depending on its severity, it can overcome us and interfere with our daily routine. Mild depression is common, but when it overtakes us and lasts for long periods of time, help should be sought out. This mental illness can grow larger and loom over us and can also have a devastating outcome.

It is important to seek help if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Concentration difficulties
  • Unusual fatigue with a loss of energy
  • Extreme sadness
  • Crying for long periods of time with no relief
  • Losing interest in things that you normally have enjoyed
  • Being irritable
  • Sleeping more than usual
  • A lack of self-esteem and feeling like you are not important
  • Feeling that you or your situation is hopeless
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Being unsure of your decisions, wavering back and forth with your thoughts and choices
  • Lack of interest in sex and sexual difficulties in general
  • Insomnia
  • Persistent or recurring headaches
  • A general achiness and pains throughout the body
  • Expressing wishes of death or suicidal ideas
  • Changes in weight, either a loss or gain, brought on by appetite changes

Depression with multiple sclerosis is a common occurrence. A person with multiple sclerosis is under increased stress and encounters many physical challenges. The worry alone concerning their health will cause them be at an increased risk for depression.

Another reason why depression is not surprising in a multiple sclerosis victim is that multiple sclerosis itself can bring about depression due to its destruction of the insulation that is around the nerves. This insulation is called the myelin and it affects your mood when it is unable to carry out its job of transmitting their signals. Some medications used to treat multiple sclerosis patients can also cause depression.

Help for depression is readily obtainable and should be sought out before it becomes severe. Your physician can refer you to a mental health professional who can help you in treating your depression. Treatment for depression is done through counseling, support groups, and medication.

Do not wait to get help for depressive symptoms. Nobody has to suffer with depression and deserves an enriched quality of life. Seek help at the first sign of troublesome depressive symptoms and look forward to a brighter tomorrow.
