If you’re living with a neurologic condition such as dementia, stroke, traumatic brain injury or MS and are experiencing unexpected outbursts of crying or laughing you could have PseudoBulbar Affect - PBA. Nearly 2 million Americans with certain underlying neurologic diseases are estimated to suffer from PBA.
Think you might have PBA? Take the short assessment here and share the results with your doctor. The PBA assessment was developed by healthcare professionals and is called the Center for Neurologic Study-Lability Scale (CNS-LS). Your answers to the seven simple questions will help your doctor determine if you could have PBA. This assessment tool is not intended to substitute for professional medical assessment and/or advice. Please consult your doctor.
The CNS-LS has been validated in ALS and MS patient populations.
