The results of psychological disorder symptoms indicate that the mean score of the somatization (U=4798, Z=-4.471, p<0.001), obsessive–compulsive disorder (U=4450.500, Z=-5.118, p<0.001), interpersonal sensitivity (U=4572.500, Z=-4.893, p<0.001), Depression (U= 4775.500, Z=-4.513, p<0.001), anxiety (U=4360.500, Z=-5.219, p<0.001), hostility (U=4411.500, Z=-5.204, p<0.001), phobia (U=5099.500, Z=-3.945, p<0.001), paranoia (U=5375, Z=-3.401, p<0.001), pychoticism (U=4154.500, Z=-5.689, p<0.001) mean score of GSI  (U=419, Z=-5.597, p<0.001) in MS patients were significantly more than healthy people.
