I was wondering if any of you lovely people could give me an idea on exactly how the “MS hug” manifests itself.
I am awaiting my first Neuro appointment and, among many other things, have started to get horrible pains in my ribs. These pains move around a bit, but are always in my ribs, front and/or back, and are quite painful. I also get this feeling sometimes that I just need to take a really deep breath to fill my lungs with air so I can breathe properly.
I am also experiencing almost constant tingling on my right side, all around where most of these pains are (I have had them on the left side as well, but mostly on the right). I have many other symptoms, including constant tingling/numbness in my legs and right arm, but this pain is really getting me down.
Does this sound like it could be the dreaded “MS hug”?
