The article presents information on the relation between stress and multiple sclerosis (MS). It is generally believed that there is a definite connection between stress and the disease, and controlling stress can have a beneficial impact on MS. Many people with MS symptoms feel that they experience more symptoms during stressful times. During times of stress, more energy is required to think, problem-solve, and handle daily life and therefore MS symptoms are strongly experienced. The common symptoms of stress include changes in breathing, tight muscles, cold sweaty hands and clenched teeth. INSET: Stress & Exacerbations..
