PseudoBulbar Affect (PBA): A Lesser-Known Neurologic Condition That Can Follow Stroke

PBA is:

  • A neurologic condition that can happen after a stroke
  • Sudden, frequent, uncontrollable crying and/or laughing
  • An emotional expression that doesn’t match how you feel

It’s important to understand these PBA symptoms and talk to your doctor about how to manage them.
