Ok. So I'm working on this grand post which touches on the issue of psychosomatic disorders and how those with Multiple Sclerosis might be told "it's all in your head" before they even discover that "it truly is in your head."
There is quite a bit of reach which connects inflammation, stress-induced cortisol levels, etc and the physical and psychological manifestations in humans. BTW, did you know that not only are they same pro-inflammatory cytokines inflammatory proteins (ie Interleukin-2 and -6) involved in MS are also involved in depression and bi-polar disorder?
How many of you were directed to consult a psychiatrist or offered anti-depressants before the doctor's would consider your symptoms which you now know are caused by MS?
Also, there is research that does indicate that specific types of antidepressants may be helpful in protecting from neurological damage. The whole field of psychoneuroimmunology is new to me, so I am reading a lot about it.
If you have information you'd like to share which touches on any of the above, please feel free to do so in the comments.
