Anyone Out There Suffer From PBA?

Anyone Out There Suffer From PBA?

I suffer from PBA (Pseudobulbur Affect)It causes uncontrollable crying or laughing. I guess I'm lucky because I get the laughing not the crying, but don't feel so lucky after 4 days of laughing from morning to night.

Yes, I have PBA and it can be such a problem. About 3 1/2 weeks ago, I started on Nuedexta. It really helps. My issue has been crying now and many, many years it was laughing. My family had gotten to the pint they would not talk about anything that would trigger crying. When I did I would tell them It is not me reacting this way. Finally, now that I have the medication, I hope to react normally to people talking about anything and not start crying.
