Here is My Question:
What if I'm having severe issues with outbursts of yelling and then crying when I am not feeling heard about my symptoms of memory loss, speech, reading and handwriting issues.
Psuedobulbar affect or PBA results from a damage to certain parts of the nervous system that lowers the threshold for expressing emotions such as laughing or crying . There are certain key features that distinguish PBA for other forms of labile mood.
It is important to different PBA from mood congruent emotional outbursts that are usually not as pervasive as PBA. These labile mood disorders are often associated with psychiatric conditions and personality disorders and are often associated with dramatic changes in opinions and feelings.
