Depression is an altered mood state involving sadness, loss of concentration, and apathy. Depression is a relatively common symptom of multiple sclerosis, where it can be reactive, i.e. a response to the difficulties involved in having MS, or endogenous, i.e. a result of the damage done to the regions of the brain that control emotions. There are a variety of treatments for depression.
