Can Your Relationship Affect Your MS?

By Lizzie Rubin, a certified sex therapist.

Have you noticed that sometimes when you have relationship problems that cause you emotional distress, your MS symptoms rear their ugly head?

It is not just a hunch but rather backed up by science. Research indicates that constant squabbling with your partner might trigger the body’s inflammatory response, leading to various health problems, such as inflammation and flare-ups.

Moreover, apparently, it is a vicious cycle. Quarreling might cause flare-ups and pain, which in turn might lead to more bickering and so on and so forth.

If you have any related questions, or subjects you want to discuss, please don’t hesitate to ask, either here or in the Sexuality & MS group.
