PBS Who Suffers And How Do You Deal With It?

PBS Who Suffers And How Do You Deal With It?

I have issues with crying all the time but I resently started to laugh and not be able to stop to the point I choke. Just wondering what everyone else thinks about this

For clarification it's called PBA (pseudobulbar affect) and not PBS.
There's only one medication approved by the U.S. FDA specifically for the treatment of PBA which is Dextromethorphan hydrobromide and quinidine sulfate (brand name -Nuedexta). However antidepressants are also used to help reduce the frequency.

I was diagnosed in 2010 with MS ... The uncontrollable crying happened around 2012 ... Uncontrollable laughter started this month.... It scares me because I get to a point I can breathe but I still can't stop laughing and then the crying starts at the same time... I get very confused
