Is this MS hug?

I feel like my upper abdomen is being squeezed, a bit like I would expect to feel if I had over eaten or have indigestion. I’m ok sitting down, but standing or trying to walk takes my breath away.

i was dx eight years ago, and have had this on a number of occasions. It passes when I sit and rest for a while.

the hug is caused when the little muscles (inter-costal) go into spasm.

call your ms nurse and ask about it.

Thank you, but I don’t have an ms nurse or neurologist. This site and all you lovely people are my only source of information.

The NHS have written me off.
