Results indicated the physiological and self-concept was associated with the history of MS, while the role function was associated with marital status. In addition, physiological dimension was associated with education level and occupation. Social functioning was associated with marital status. Somatic symptoms were associated with physiological dimension and self-concept. Anxiety and depression were associated with physiological dimension, self-concept, and role function.
