MS & depression

Is it a condition caused by the MS? Is a condition developed because of the restrictions given because of MS? How can it be combated?

Depression is a symptom of MS and can be a natural reaction to changes in your life or mood caused by MS- just as you suspected. It can also be a side effect of DMTs or drugs you take to combat symptoms although you don't have any listed. Don't know if you cruise You Tube at all but I have found Life of Seb an interesting journey and he had a good segment on Depression https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgKozlRhT7I&list=PL6ER_vJj2m6KBmvAktnFi7kKk0Ppf3bO4&index=4&t=0s And Dr Boster, who has many great videos on You Tube on MS, put this one out on depression https://msandmemedia.com/2017/06/10/20-tips-tricks-tackle-depression-multiple-sclerosis-dr-aaron-boster-ohio-health-ms-center/ Hopefully these help...but yes, depression is a common symptom of MS
