    Yes me too, it means I can't use my eye gaze to explain what's so funny or chat for quite some time

    I don't do the "laughing" emotional lability as much as the "crying". Even some TV adverts set me off, as do people winning on quiz shows!! How to explain that? If I see or hear something even vaguely emotional, I'm off again. I was friends with a guy with MND and we both used to regularly trigger bouts of tears in each other but then we'd burst out laughing - much to the confusion of those around us.

    I've too had a bit more emotional triggers (over laughing, or crying) in the past 6 months or so. Hope they don't get too bad.

    Iím 37 and I started having a weakness in my voice and then the Emotional Liability started, any laughing or crying is out of proportion, Iíve been diagnosed with ALS as of yesterday and Iím relieved because now I know I canít change whatís happening so for the first time since my symptoms started, Iím going to the cinema to see the Lion King tomorrow, my Doc gave me Sertraline and thatís helped so much, try to not worry, there are things out there that can help

    Hi Hayls & welcome to the Forum but sorry you've had to join.

    Glad the Sertraline is working for your EL.

    If you feel up to it, feel free to post in the Introduce Yourself sub-forum so people can give you a proper Hello and Welcome.

    Love Ellie.
