Mood Disorders: How to Recognize and Treat Them


Could You Have A Mood Disorder?

If your emotions and moods seem out of your control over a long period of time, you may have a mood disorder. There are several different types, and all of them can be treated

Bipolar Disorder

This causes extreme mood swings, from depression to emotional highs called mania. During the highs, you have more energy and your thoughts may come quickly -- you may be unusually talkative.

Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) who experience seizures are more likely to be younger at the age of MS onset than patients with MS who do not have seizures, according to a study reported in Neurological Sciences by the Epilepsy Study Group of the Italian Neurological Society. The disease course also tended to be slightly more severe in patients with seizures.1
An overlap between MS and epileptic seizures has been observed in previous studies, although the significance of this is not well understood.2-7The most common condition to show a higher incidence and prevalence in MS is epilepsy, estimated in 1 meta-analysis at 2.28% and 3.09%, respectively, compared with a frequency of <1% in the general population.8,9
