(apologies - have asked this question before but there may be new users on this site.)
Some years ago close relative admitted to a mental hospital - very agitated and delusional. Given ECT and some drugs.
Things settled down but relative was not the same - unable to hold any job down - physically slowed up - little interest in anything. In bed a lot of the time.
Relative died a few years later - heart problems.
M.S. never mentioned but as I have m.s. I wonder in retrospect if relative did as well.
2 questions -
- can m.s. be responsible for a severe mental condition - I don’t mean being depressed or anxious because someone has m.s.?
– what might the effect of ECT be on some one with m.s.?
