So I was diagnosed with RRMS in august seem to be ok most of the time but the mood swings I get are crazy, my irritation levels are bad, wondered if this is normal ? I know the common answer is no person is the same etc
I don’t know! I’ve read another post on here recently where another member is saying that there was a study which links inflammation in the brain to depression. So it could be part of that for you ? I’m having similar problems and it’s really getting me down. I think you should talk to your doctor and see what they say. I hope you feel better and in the meantime try to rest and do things that make you happy if you can. Stress is definitely bad for MS.
Hi, so I so get this, although I was diagnosed with SP, my mood swings can be bad, I think they were worse just before my 1st big attack, that’s going back 14yrs now, I would literally have a go at anyone that got on my nerves and I was quite aggressive, I’m not proud to say that, I even had a go once at a big builder in B&Q, my hubby said, " are you trying to get me a black eye, because it’ll be me he hits and not you", that made me stop and think. Thankfully there not quite as bad as that now, but when I’m in a mood, watch out, this tends to happen when my fatigue is really high, I’ve learnt this now and try my best to curtail it, so you’re not on your own.
Hi Jean, yeah I can imagine I would get myself into this kind of situation and I never used to. I’m glad it’s passed for you and that you know how to recognise it. I have a young baby so I can’t really rest when I want to and I have to run a household and work from home at the same time with basically no support. So I’m not surprised I lose it sometimes. I am fatigued.
Honestly I’m not proud of it…it’s like this range would just come over me . Ah Jackie you’re safe now…honestly and EmilyR, I still don’t always get it right, now’s its my poor hubby that gets my moodiness, but not to the point of the burly builders, take care all.
Hi Philld, as you are so newly diagnosed, it will still be all so very raw and difficult to assimilate.
*I would put this down to the reason you are having such moods. If you dont feel you can cope as time moves on, perhaps have a word with your GP.
Perhaps a mild mood leveller will help.
