I have been trying to find out what triggered a particularly nasty symptom a few weeks ago. It was an intense pain from my back through to my ribs which left me in agony so much so that I considered calling an ambulance, it left me very frightened which I have now related to my nurse and my Neuro has advised my GP that I should have Clonazepam for this.
I have had this pain several times but not for a couple of years now. I belive it is called 'the ms hug'. I have muscle spasms around my ribs most of the time and take Amitriptyline and practise Alexander Technique, which seems to work pretty well, normally.
I did think it was some food which was the trigger but now wonder if it was the bad cold virius I had been suffering from at the time.
Can anyone else tell me if they have experienced acute nerve pain after suffering from a virus? Thank you for any replies.
