Anger, laughter and tears: understanding emotional outbursts in MS

This factsheet outlines some of the most common forms of emotionalism, what to do if you think you – or a friend or family member – is experiencing these symptoms and how they can be managed.

The first part of the factsheet is written for anyone finding it difficult to control their emotions. But if you are reading it because you have noticed this symptom in someone you know, there is a short section at the end just for you.

There’s more on the common emotional symptoms of MS and how you can manage them in our booklets 'MS and your emotions' and 'Living with the effects of MS'.
